Services

Housing services

To experience university life fully, nothing equals living on campus where students can enjoy convenience and a sense of community. UCLA’s on-campus housing is situated at the heart of university life and is just a short walk away from classrooms, laboratories, libraries, and sports facilities. With housing and dining needs met, students are free to concentrate on being a full-time student.

Library services

The UCLA Library creates a vibrant nexus of ideas, collections, expertise, and spaces in which users illuminate solutions for local and global challenges. We constantly evolve to advance UCLA’s research, education, and public service mission by empowering and inspiring communities of scholars and learners to discover, access, create, share, and preserve knowledge.

ICT services

Access to the wireless network is available to the UCLA community and guests while on campus and it supports most mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, and smart phones.

Coverage will improve as the campus wireless continues to grow to accommodate the entire campus.

Medical services

Our Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center is recognized as the best in Los Angeles and one of the top ten hospitals in the country — and it's right on our campus. The Arthur Ashe Student Health and Wellness Center offers urgent care, immunizations and specialty clinics.

Student Life

Campus life

Bordered by iconic neighborhoods — Bel Air, Brentwood, Beverly Hills — UCLA is a crossroads of ideas, cultures and limitless experiences and opportunities.

Whether it's getting an acting gig as an extra in Hollywood or catching the last set at the Coachella music festival, strolling down the Sunset Strip or taking your first ride up Pacific Coast Highway — at UCLA, the journey is the destination.

Sports facilities

At the UCLA Steve Tisch BrainSPORT Program, our goal is to establish the world’s most advanced diagnostic and treatment program for athletes who have suffered concussions as well as non-sports related head injuries.We are the leaders in concussion care and education, that’s why we have created the nation’s first Pediatric Sports Neurology Fellowship Program that will train the world’s best physicians to treat sport concussions in young athletes

Student clubs

With more than 1,000 clubs and student organizations, UCLA is a mosaic of culture and activity. And the majority of our students fill their schedules to capacity. They are influential figures at the Volunteer Center and leaders at the Center for Community Learning and Community Programs Office. They are intramural basketball players and sailors. They're active in fraternity and sorority life and coordinators on the Campus Events Commission. They're writers for the Daily Bruin and deejays at UCLA Radio. And when they're not engaging in extracurricular activities, there's an array of campus stores and restaurants for shopping and dining. Whatever you're into, chances are, someone here is too.
