Our Facilities: Where Learning Happens

The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences facilities are primarily located on the west side of the main campus. The college's main offices are centrally located in the Humanities & Social Sciences Building, along with several departmental offices in those disciplines. The beautiful Arts Building and Interdisciplinary Building are a short walk to the north, with the University Theatre just to the south.

CHASS reach extends beyond campus to the ARTSblock complex in downtown Riverside.
