In 1965, Santa Cruz's first students lived in on-site caravans in what is now the East Field athletics area. Today, around 16,800 students occupy the four-year public institution's 2,001-acre campus in eight residential college communities nestled amid redwood forests and meadows overlooking Monterey Bay.
