Free Event

The UCR Library is committed to creating a supportive atmosphere for our students, as final exams can breed a lot of stress. That is why we present our Finals Week Stress Relief (FWSR) event series at the end of every quarter.


These events give library employees an opportunity to get to know our students better, and for our students to let off steam together in a safe and fun way.


The only events you need to RSVP for are our virtual Bingo and virtual Kahoot! games.
