Before the campus opened in October 1965, many of those employed by UCI worked in the Interim Office Building near the corner of Jamboree and Campus. Below are photos showing what life was like in those early years.

The UCI campus in the decade of the 80’s was a rad venue for seeing well-known bands of the time perform. Ever heard of Missing Persons, Oingo Boingo, or X? The Associated Students of the University of California in Irvine (ASUCI) invited groups such as these to provide entertainment to the campus community.
Here are scans from just a few of the materials in this collection consisting mainly of backstage passes and oversized posters for events from 1976 to 2006.
