The Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, River­side is one of 10 uni­ver­si­ties within the pres­ti­gious Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia system, and the only UC located in Inland South­ern Cal­i­for­nia. Located approx­i­mately 50 miles east of down­town Los Ange­les, UCR is also within easy dri­ving dis­tance of dozens of major cul­tural and recre­ational sites, as well as desert, moun­tain, and coastal des­ti­na­tions. Widely rec­og­nized as one of the most eth­ni­cally diverse research uni­ver­si­ties in the nation, UCR cur­rently hosts about 22,000 stu­dents, with 900 instruc­tional fac­ulty includ­ing 660 ladder-rank fac­ulty.

The campus is in the midst of a tremen­dous growth spurt with new and remod­eled facil­i­ties coming on-line on a reg­u­lar basis. The revamped 155,000 square foot, LEED Gold stu­dent recre­ation center offers expanded cardio and weight areas, spaces for cut­ting-edge fit­ness classes, intra­mural sports, a 237,000 gallon swim­ming pool and 32 foot climb­ing wall and boul­der­ing area, among other ameni­ties.

Selux MTR column and bol­lards were part of the remod­el­ing, bring­ing dis­tinc­tive exte­rior light­ing design to the much-needed recre­ation facil­i­ties for UCR’s grow­ing stu­dent com­mu­nity.

The Amer­i­can Insti­tute of Archi­tects (AIA) Inland Cal­i­for­nia Chap­ter has rec­og­nized the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, River­side, Recre­ation Center expan­sion effort with both a Merit Award and People’s Choice honors.
