UC San Diego Housing: Sixth College

Sixth College challenges students to explore the historical and philosophical connections between culture, art, and technology. Creativity, imagination and artistic expression are encouraged as students learn to take intellectual risks and think outside the box. The residential life program serves to enhance the academic mission and philosophy of the college by making connections to learning experiences outside the classroom.
