Wear good walking shoes! It's the biggest UC campus (size wise) if I remember our guide correctly. My daughter is a prospective student and it is our closest UC campus. She thinks it may be too big for her (and also too close to home)....More

Go to the Visitor's Center (or take a Triton Tour) to get a map of all the interesting things (outdoor art sculptures - The Stuart Collection, murals, buildings, etc...) that are on this amazing campus. It's definitely worth a half day of exploring/walking around. Best...More

The campus is open to the public. However, parking at the University is challenging. Be careful to read posted signs regarding parking very carefully - they ticket aggressively. There are a few lots where you can pay to park, and an office where you can buy a pass, but otherwise you need a long-term parking permit for all parking locations. Another option is to park off campus and walk.
