College Nine was the first college founded at UCSC since College Eight (now: Rachel Carson College) was founded in 1972. College Nine was founded in 2000, and still hasn’t received a name yet.
College Nine’s theme is “International and Global Issues”. The core course takes an international focus on issues such as human rights, the environment, and economic globalization.
College Nine is located at the north end of campus, east of Science Hill and west of Crown College, right next to College Ten. Colleges Nine and Ten share a bus stop, and campus loop buses and the city buses stop here going both directions.
