» Life at Rinker

Sitting on 7.5 acres, Chapman University celebrated the grand opening of the Harry and Diane Rinker Health Science Campus in 2015. As the campus physically grows in buildings, so does the student and faculty population. On average, the Rinker campus sees 700 people walk through its doors daily, and foot traffic continues to grow annually. 

The Rinker campus was designed for health sciences and balances research laboratory space, tech-enhanced classrooms, and lounge spaces lined with whiteboards and art derived from science.

The Rinker campus boasts excess parking spots for students, faculty, staff, and guests. Chapman University also operates a campus shuttle that escorts people between the campuses. Rinker is nested alongside the 5 and 133 highways for efficient commutes that connect to the 241 and 405 highways.
