University of California, Irvine is located in the city of Irvine in Orange County, California, about 50 miles south of Los Angeles. It is the second-youngest campus in the UC system. The perfect location, excellent learning and living environment, and the reputation of Silicon Valley in Southern California with a large number of high-tech companies has helped the school become one of the fastest growing branches.

At the same time, it has a total of 1.5 million books and 17,000 periodicals. In addition, UCI also has a scientific library, a medical center library as well as other professional libraries. UCI provides library books for teachers and students without any restrictions, with a rental time of up to 3 months. There is also a network of tunnels that runs along many of the buildings on campus. While the majority of them carry electrical and air-conditioning utilities, some students suspect that they may have been constructed to facilitate safe evacuation of students and faculty members in case of emergencies.
