UCLA is a great place to be with a multitude of resources. We encourage you to make the most of your time and have fun! Various social activities & group tours are offered throughout the summer to help you meet new people and explore beyond the campus.
The university offers furnished residence halls and residential suites within easy walking distance of classrooms, libraries, and recreational facilities for summer students who are 15 years of age or older by the first day of summer (i.e., June 25, 2018).
Most students find living on campus to be a convenient and enjoyable option during Summer Sessions. Housing is available for periods of 6, 8, 9, 10, and 12 weeks.
For students who prefer the independence of living off-campus, UCLA also offers furnished University Apartments near campus. To be eligible for University Apartments, you must be 18 or older.
For more information on summer housing opportunities, please visit UCLA Housing Services.
All students have access to UCLA Recreation but some classes may require a fee. You must show a valid BruinCard to use the services.
