Anteaters have more fun


From concerts to comedy night, our student life is as renowned as our academics.

Student Life at UCI


In addition to providing a world-class education, UCI also brings you an exciting, vibrant student life. There are concerts, festivals, movie screenings, comedy nights, and many other special activities throughout the year. Several of the most popular annual campus-wide events include Summerlands and Homecoming.

Have niche interests? Odds are, others in our student body share them. Dance crews. Esports. Greek fraternities and sororities. You can compete, volunteer, and pursue what you enjoy the most, all while making lifelong friends. And if you’re into athletics, you can play an intramural or club sport or earn a roster spot on one of our 18 NCAA Division I athletic teams.

Having fun is a big part of student life at UCI. You're only minutes away from the beach, and you can also road trip to Los Angeles and San Diego or visit famous destinations such as Disneyland.
