Located just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean, UC Irvine is surrounded by California's nicest beaches, the art, culture, and night life of Los Angeles, the famous Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, and the Mojave Desert. From hiking, mountain biking, and surfing to film festivals, art walks, and theater performances, there is truly something for everyone. The welcoming campus, situated in the "Safest Cities in America" - Irvine, is also located near numerous well-known engineering companies, ideal for post-graduates and those looking to get ahead in the world of engineering.
Graduate students are guaranteed on-campus housing, which offers amenities for both family and single living, parking, and a clubhouse that is available for personal or community events. Housing is also conveniently located alongside the Anteater Recreation Center, an on-campus gym that is fully equipped with large indoor/outdoor courts, fields, a swimming pool, a rock-climbing wall and an array of fitness classes. Although the UCI campus sits in a prime location with accessibility to a multitude of activities, it remains commuter friendly to commuting without a personal vehicle. All students have access to The Orange County Transportation Authority, which provides the university with shuttles to commute to campus, for a nominal yearly price.
