Expansion of campus services and activities

At this time, the campus remains closed to the general public, pursuant to public health orders. Only people who are engaged in essential campus operations or other approved campus activities, are attending approved in-person courses, or are receiving care at UCLA hospitals and clinics are permitted.

Expansion of campus services: With Los Angeles County moving into the least restrictive yellow tier of the state’s four-tier reopening blueprint, campus leaders have announced the limited expansion of certain on-campus services and activities, including some libraries, dining halls, museums, recreational facilities and outdoor study spaces. For more, visit our Return to Campus page.

Classes and housing: While instruction will remain primarily remote for spring 2021 and student housing capacity will not change, a small number of courses will be allowed to transition to in-person instruction. If public health restrictions continue to be rolled back, UCLA expects to be in a position to offer significant in-person instruction and on-campus student housing this fall.

Employees and work: UCLA previously announced that staff and faculty currently working remotely should expect to continue doing so through at least June 30, 2021. As the campus ramps up its operations to support in-person instruction and other on-site activities, it is possible that some staff may need to return to campus to support those efforts sooner than that.

Generally, employees who have been successfully working remotely can expect to continue doing so through the end of August. Supervisors will be in touch directly with staff to provide more detailed information about their departments’ plans.

Since remote working has been successful for many employees, the campus is developing flexible work options and standards for those who are able to continue working effectively remotely, fully or partially, even after we recover from the pandemic. More information on these plans is available in Planning for a Phased Transition Back to Campus (PDF) and Workplace of the Future (PDF), and in our April 14 town hall video.
