Living at Caltech

It's true that Techers work hard, but studying is certainly not all there is to Tech life! While they are by definition passionate scientists or engineers, Techers also have a surprisingly wide range of other passions: sports, music, drama, community service, cooking, art. Whatever your interest, there's probably a group of Techers who share it.

Undergrad life tends to revolve around Caltech's distinctive student Houses, where students eat, study, and socialize together. More than 150 clubs offer opportunities to get involved in campus life, as do organizations like the Center for Diversity and the Caltech Y.

Want to explore Southern California? Students often venture off campus to experience the activities, events, and cultural phenomena of Pasadena and Los Angeles.
