The University of Redlands is a private, independent liberal arts university centrally located in the heart of southern California. Situated in the area east of Los Angeles known as the Inland Empire, the beautiful Redlands campus is within easy traveling distance of snow skiing, hiking and climbing to the north, some of the world’s best beaches to the south, Palm Springs and Joshua Tree to the east, and the urban culture of Los Angeles to the west.

Ranked 12th among regional universities in the West by U.S. News & World Report, Redlands offers 50 undergraduate programs as well as graduate programs in business, communicative disorders, education, geographic information systems and music.  

The University of Redlands serves approximately 5,000 students in its primarily undergraduate residential College of Arts and Sciences, as well as its School of Education and School of Business, which offer graduate programs at eight locations across southern California in addition to the main campus. The School of Continuing Studies offers non-degree program credentials and course opportunities.

Redlands blends liberal arts and professional programs, applied and theoretical study, traditional majors and self-designed contracts for graduation. For a select group of highly motivated, self-driven students, the progressive Johnston Center for Integrative Studies allows such inclined undergraduates to negotiate their own course of study with a faculty/peer committee, receiving narrative evaluations rather than letter grades.

The Master of Science in Geographic Information Systems program is an intensive, one-year residential program that draws international acclaim, in part due to the close collaboration with Redlands-based Esri, the world’s leading GIS company.

Recognized for having one of the highest study abroad participation rates among our peers, Redlands students travel the world, choosing from more than 100 programs. Redlands’ Community Service Learning program receives national acclaim each year as our students complete over 120,000 hours of public service annually around the world.
