Campus Safety

UCLA works relentlessly 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.


UCLA is committed to maintaining a safe and respectful learning environment and takes an unwavering stand against any act that violates the True Bruin values. As part of UCLA’s ongoing efforts to ensure safety of the True Bruin Community, the following protocol has been established to prevent and respond to sexual violence. This protocol includes information on confidential support services and reporting options for those who have experienced sexual violence, as well as respondent services for those who have been accused of sexual assault or misconduct.

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


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.

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.


Summer Sessions parking permits will be available beginning May 1 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

UCLA provides insurance to eligible matriculated UCLA students only. Therefore, it is your sole responsibility to maintain sufficient health, accident, disability, and hospitalization insurance while traveling to and from UCLA, and through your participation in UCLA Summer Sessions.

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.
