JumpStart Summer Institute

JumpStart Summer Institute: Introduction to Architecture


UCLA Housing Services can accommodate only the programs that coincide with their preset housing periods with the minimum length being six weeks. For that reason, University housing cannot be arranged for only four weeks. Non-commuter students must arrange their own accommodations. For programs that do not coincide with regular summer housing periods, such as JumpStart, students may consider UCLA Summer Hostel Housing (on-campus) or options such as 613 Gayley (off campus), both of which offer shorter-term housing solutions.

Sexual Violence Prevention and Response

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.




UCLA Sexual Violence Prevention & Response

  • For current matriculated UCLA students, the office of Student Legal Services also provides confidential assistance to students; you can request an appointment with an attorney on the website or by calling call 310-825-9894. Please note that Student Legal Services is not available for non-UCLA students.

You can view general information about transportation to UCLA.

UCLA Summer Sessions does not provide transportation to/from the airport. If arriving to UCLA by plane, you will need to arrange your own transportation to campus.

LAX is the closet airport to UCLA, approximately 13 miles away. For a list of ground transportation options to/from LAX and campus, visit the LAX Ground Transportation webpage. Other nearby airports include Bob Hope Airport in Burbank (21 miles away) and Long Beach/Daugherty Field Airport (32 miles away).


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.


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. Depending on the number of days you will be on-campus, 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

In order to participate in Summer Institutes, you are required to maintain sufficient health, accident, disability, and hospitalization insurance while traveling to and from UCLA, as well as through participation in your Summer Institute program.

UCLA does not provide UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) to Summer Institute participants except only for UCLA students who have purchased UC SHIP for Spring 2018.

If you are a continuing UCLA student and have purchased UC SHIP for Spring 2018, your UC SHIP coverage continues through September 23, 2018; if you have purchased BruinCare for Spring 2018, your BruinCare coverage ends on June 15, 2018.

If you attend one of the other UC campuses and have purchased UC SHIP from your home UC campus, please consult your campus health care office for information on your coverage.  

If you are an international student receiving I-20 from UCLA for participation in your Summer Institute program, you will be enrolled in a two-part health insurance plan. Please see Health Insurance in the Visa Information for International Students section for more information.  

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.
