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.
