Beginning in fall quarter 2021, the Campuswide Honors Collegium (CHC) will open its doors in a new location at UCI. The Student Excellence Center is a newly-renovated center on the 5th floor of the Science Library that includes the CHC, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), and the Scholarship Opportunities Program (SOP). 

With the growth of the Campuswide Honors Collegium over the past ten years, our well-loved space in Student Services II had gotten quite tight. The new location nearly doubles the space available to the CHC and its students, including a new Locus lounge! Students will have access to all of the amenities of the Student Excellence Center, including a large amount of comfortable study space, state-of-the-art wireless and screen technology, and ease of connection to our related programs, UROP and SOP.

UCI is planning a grand opening of the Student Excellence Center in the fall, so watch your email for further information!
