STUDENTS

We are excited that you will be participating in UCLA Summer Sessions!

Please make sure you familiarize yourself with the information below as you will be responsible for understanding UCLA’s policies and regulations. 

STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT

The UCLA Student Conduct Code has been developed to maintain a safe, supportive, and inclusive campus community that engages students in order to foster their academic success, personal growth and responsible citizenship. Therefore you are expected to conduct yourself in a manner which demonstrates respect for yourself, your fellow Summer Sessions students, UCLA's faculty members, and members of the local community.

Behavior governed by the UCLA Student Conduct Code includes academic honesty, treatment of others, health and safety, use of resources, and use of alcohol and controlled substances. UCLA’s reputation for academic excellence and institutional integrity is among the most valued assets; as such, academic integrity is of paramount importance and UCLA does all within its power to maintain its standards.

During the summer, matriculated UCLA students and visiting students alike are members of our diverse and inclusive True Bruin community. For more information, please visit the Dean of Students' website.

Campus Safety

UCLA strives to offer an environment where individuals of all ages can live, learn, and work safely. The UCLA Police Department's priority is the safety of the UCLA community. UCPD offers a variety of crime-prevention and education services, as well as evening escort (310-794-WALK) and van services (310-825-9800) that operate throughout campus and local living areas. Participants in UCLA Summer Sessions, UCLA and visiting students alike, can report safety concerns or any suspicious activities/behavior directly to UCPD at 310-825-1491 at any time. For emergencies, always call 911.

A list of safety tips while on campus is available here.

No Smoking Policy

UCLA is a smoke-free campus!

Creating a safe environment for students, faculty and staff is our priority at UCLA.

Tobacco use is prohibited everywhere on campus and at properties owned or leased by UCLA. There will be no designated smoking areas. We ask that tobacco users be respectful of our neighbors and not congregate or litter on their property.

All tobacco users who want to quit are encouraged to call the free California Smokers Helpline at 1-800-NO-BUTTS.

Students who wish to quit smoking can obtain free nicotine-replacement therapy kits (NRTs) at the Ashe Center, where counseling and tobacco-cessation support is also available.

Sexual Violence Prevention and Response

UCLA is committed to creating and maintaining a community where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of sexual harassment and sexual violence. UCLA does not discriminate on the basis of sex or gender, and sexual harassment and sexual violence are prohibited under law and University policy.

Please review the information below regarding how to report incidents of sexual violence or sexual harassment and where to access confidential resources for those who have experienced such harassment or violence or have been accused of sexual violence or sexual harassment.

Reporting Options

  • All Summer Sessions participants can report incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence to the Title IX office. Please remember that under the UC Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment, employees are obligated to report sexual harassment and sexual violence to the Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX coordinator, Mohammed Cato, is responsible for implementing and enforcing the University’s policies and procedures relating to sexual harassment and sexual violence. The Title IX office is located on the second floor of Murphy Hall. Reports can be made in person, via email at titleix@conet.ucla.edu, online at http://www.sexualharassment.ucla.edu, or by phone at (310) 206-3417.
  • Individuals also have the right to report to law enforcement, and can do so at any time regardless of whether they have filed a report with the University. Visit UCPD at 601 Westwood Plaza or contact them at (310) 825-1491.

Confidential Resources for Harmed Individuals

  • UCLA community members, including Summer Sessions participants, who have suffered sexual violence but may not feel ready to report can turn to the confidential Campus Assault Resources & Education (CARE) Program. CARE is a free, completely confidential resource dedicated to working with survivors of sexual harassment and sexual violence. CARE advocates can provide confidential support to individuals who have been harmed, make connections to medical care and other resources, explain reporting options and provide accompaniment through the reporting and conduct process. CARE Advocates may also be able to facilitate housing needs, academic adjustments and other accommodations. The CARE Program is located on the first floor of Wooden Center West, and online at www.careprogram.ucla.edu. CARE advocates can be reached at advocate@careprogram.ucla.edu or (310) 206-2465.
  • Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) may provide confidential counseling and treatment and a CAPS counselor is available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (310) 825-0768. CAPS is located at the Counseling Center on the 2nd floor of Wooden Center West.
  • Anyone who suffers sexual violence can receive confidential services from the Rape Treatment Center (RTC) at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center. The RTC provides comprehensive, free treatment for sexual assault victims, including 24-hour emergency medical care and forensic services, counseling and psychotherapy, advocacy and accompaniment services. Clients visiting the RTC can get a free ride from UCPD or get cab fare reimbursed. The RTC is at 1250 Sixteenth Street, Santa Monica, 90404 or (424) 259-6000.

Resources for Accused Individuals

  • Summer Sessions participants who have been accused of sexual violence or sexual harassment by the Title IX Office can contact the UCLA Summer Sessions at lengle@summer.ucla.edu or (310) 825-1875. Summer Sessions can coordinate with appropriate campus units that can help accused individuals understand their rights, campus and community resources that may be beneficial, as well as the investigation and adjudication process. Summer Sessions is located at 1331 Murphy Hall.  
  • Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) may provide confidential counseling and treatment and a CAPS counselor is available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (310) 825-0768. CAPS is located at the Counseling Center on the 2nd floor of Wooden Center West.
