More than just our location and namesake, the city of Redlands is our home—and we couldn’t ask for a better one. Nestled at the foot of the San Bernardino Mountains, it’s the kind of place where you can enjoy views of snowcapped peaks on a warm, sunny winter day. In other words, it’s as unique and filled with possibility as our university.
Conveniently located within driving distance of Southern California’s most celebrated cities, attractions and natural resources, yet tucked away in a world of its own, Redlands is the ideal site for a memorable and well-rounded education.
Like the university, Redlands is always growing and changing while staying true to its roots. It’s a community that's connected to service, passionate about education and the arts and proud of its history and accomplishments. In short, it’s the perfect setting for the University of Redlands experience.
