Site Map UCR Lot 13 Parking Garage Project

This Project will construct a parking facility which will accommodate 1200 parking spaces (800 net new spaces).

This Parking facility will enhance the community and campus by creating a safe vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle friendly environment by addressing circulation along Big Springs Road and adjacent roadway alignments while effectively integrating safety amenities.

Watkins Dr Neighborhood Gateway Clean Up Event April 13, 2019

Thanks to all our neighbors and students for the successful clean up. UCR Day of Service students plus high schoolers from Moreno Valley joined neighbors for a Spring clean up along the hillside and arroyo portion of  Watkins Dr.

We collected over 20 bags of trash, 3 tires, 5 gallons of used motor oil and a couple of auto body parts.

Watkins Dr. is the Gateway to the University Neighborhood and is our wilderness version of Victoria Avenue with amazing vistas.
