Housing

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 24, 2019).

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.

To find out what it would be like living on campus, take the virtual tour of the residential halls and watch the housing videos.

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.

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, both 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.

Bruincard

The BruinCard is your passport to life at UCLA. It is the primary student identification, library, and gym card. The BruinCard also serves other purposes both on and off campus and the convenience of all the included features makes it a must-have necessity.

Starting June 1, you can pick up your BruinCard at the BruinCard Center in 123 Kerckhoff Hall. The BruinCard Center is open weekdays from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. For more information, visit www.bruincard.ucla.edu.

Parking

Summer Sessions parking permits will be available beginning June 3 on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students have the option to purchase a summer term permit. A term permit for summer is generally more cost effective and convenient than paying for parking on a daily basis.

Daily permits are also sold on a space-available basis at any of the Parking and Information booths located throughout the UCLA campus. Motorcycles, mopeds and motor scooters do not require parking permits, but may park only in designated areas.

Please review the Transportation and Parking Services webpage for additional information on parking options.

Medical Responsibility and Insurance

You must maintain sufficient health, accident, disability, and hospitalization insurance during your participation in UCLA Summer Sessions.

For continuing UCLA students, UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) coverage for summer is only available if you have purchased UC SHIP for Spring 2019. Please see below for more information.

  • UC SHIP - If you purchased UC SHIP for Spring 2019, your UC SHIP coverage may include Summer 2019. Be sure to check your coverage period on the Arthur Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center website. Please note that unless you have UC SHIP for Spring 2019, you are not eligible for UC SHIP coverage during Summer 2019.
  • BRUINCARE- BruinCare is not available during the summer term. Even if you have BruinCare for Spring 2019, your BruinCare eligibility will end on TBD.

If you are a newly admitted UCLA student and have purchased/are planning to purchase UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) or BruinCare for Fall 2019 as you formally begin your study at UCLA, please note that they may not cover your study period during the summer. You can check the Fall UC SHIP coverage start date on the Arther Ashe Student Health & Wellness website. Summer UC SHIP is only available to participants enrolled in select programs for newly admitted students. If you are enrolled in such a program, you will receive information on summer UC SHIP from your program.   

Regardless of your insurance status, you may be able to access services at the UCLA Arthur Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center at fee-for-service rates as long as you are enrolled and have made a full payment of your summer fees.

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. All UCLA students and employees have a right to be free from sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence, under Title IX of the Education amendments of 1972. 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 UCLA students 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, on-line at http://www.sexualharassment.ucla.edu/, or by phone at (310) 206-3417.

Confidential Resources for Harmed Individuals

  • UCLA community members 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.

Resources for Accused Individuals

You may contact Jason by calling (310) 825-3871 or e-mailing respondents@ucla.edu.
