UCR receives Carnegie designation

Another instructional building slated for UCR

Construction will begin this summer on a four-story building at UC Riverside that will be used for instructional education.

Approved recently by the UC Board of Regents, the Undergraduate Teaching and Learning Facility will cover 100,700 square feet and seat 1,700 students, according to a  statement on the university’s website.

The $156.3 million project will be built just south of the soccer stadium on what is now Parking Lot 19 near the Canyon Crest Drive entrance to the campus. It’s expected to be completed in summer of 2026.

“Students of all different backgrounds pursuing different interests will be in the same space and be seeing these other activities going on around them,” said Jacqueline Norman, campus architect, in the statement. “It will be one of the more exciting learning environments on campus because of that.”

This will be the second instructional building built on the UCR campus in the last three years. The Student Success Center, which seats 1,100, was built in 2021.
