I would like to share that on Saturday, September 30th, the Associated Students Program Board is hosting UCR's annual Block Party concert.  We wanted to notify you of potential amplified sound and access that may affect the inner areas of campus. The event kicks off at 3:30pm and will last until 9:30pm. However, sound checks for the artists will begin at 9:00am until 3:00 pm. Please be advised that the center of campus will be fenced and access to the inner areas of campus will be impacted as a result.  Students, faculty, and staff will be asked to walk around the fenced areas beginning at 12pm until the event ends.  We will provide signage that ensures everyone is able to get to where they need to go. Included is a map outlining the alternative routes once the venue is closed at 12pm on September 30th.  


You will start to see the set-up of staging on Wednesday, September 27th;  and set-up of fencing on Friday, September 29th.  Access to buildings will not be impacted before Saturday, September 30th. We appreciate your patience and support of activities for our students that assist them in making a deeper connection to UCR. If you would like more information about the event, please visit our website.


Students must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate program at UCR (we verify) and pre-registration is required for the event for access. UCR undergraduate students must present a physical R’Card and entry wristband to enter the event. We will not offer student verification at the event; students must have a wristband and their R'Card to enter (no exceptions).
