UCSC Students on Bridge

Considering UCSC? UC Santa Cruz is a beautiful campus located in the Santa Cruz Mountains and surrounded by redwoods, hiking/biking trails and panoramic views of the ocean—while only minutes from the beaches, boardwalk and downtown Santa Cruz.

At UC Santa Cruz, undergraduate students affiliate with one of 10 residential colleges. Each college houses students in a small-scale residential community within the larger university.

Every college community includes students with diverse backgrounds and academic goals. Your college affiliation is independent of your choice of major.

The colleges differ in theme, environment, location, architecture, core course, and programs offered. All 10 colleges are dynamic, engaging learning communities that offer opportunities for students to help build and shape their experiences.
