Many graduate students choose to share an off-campus apartment, for companionship as well as reduced living expenses. Average apartment rents can be found on the Housing Office website. Although many students will have cars, it is possible to live off campus without one. UCR was recently named one of the top 10 “green” universities by the Sierra Club and has many initiatives designed to reduce environmental impacts, including a generous incentive program for alternative transportation. The city of Riverside has clean and efficient public transportation and the excellent year-round climate makes it ideal for commuting by bicycle.
