About the Department of Entomology


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.
