  • ONCE I PARK, WHERE DO I GO?

    UCR Bell Tower.

    Check-in will be at the UCR Bell Tower, which is located at the center of campus. You can see the bell tower from almost any point on the campus by looking up at the sky. (Why?  Because it's the tallest landmark on campus and stands 161 feet tall.)

    Upon leaving the parking lot, walk down Martin Luther King Blvd. towards Canyon Crest Dr. (you'll pass under a bridge). After crossing the street, you'll be on campus.

    You can also arrive there by entering "UCR Bell Tower" into your navigation system.

    We'll also have signs directing you from the parking lot to the bell tower. 

    Note: It is a short 10-minute walk from lot 30 to the bell tower.
