Department Location:

The Entomology Department is housed in several campus buildings: the new Entomology Building, Insectary and Quarantine Facility, Chapman Hall, Biological Sciences, Boyden Laboratory, Stored Products Insects (SPI), College Building North, and the Entomology Museum. The Science and General Libraries and the Computing Center are each within a five-minute walk. Other departments of the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences also are within very easy walking distance.

University Location:

The University of California, Riverside is at the northeastern edge of the city, about a mile east of the intersection of Interstate 215 and US 60. Riverside is about 50 miles east of Los Angeles. The mild weather is well-suited to year-round outdoor activity. The area also features an exceptional diversity in topography and climate. The San Bernardino, San Gabriel and San Jacinto Mountains (maximum elevation 9,000-11,000 ft.) are within an hour's drive, offering excellent outdoor recreational opportunities (skiing, fishing, etc.). The desert and beaches also are about an hour away. Los Angeles and San Diego are within a 1-2 hour drive, and the area has a wide variety of cultural and urban attractions (museums, plays, zoos, athletics, amusement parks, etc.) as well.
