What do I have to do before returning to campus?

All UCLA students who plan to come to campus for any purpose, including class, work or other activities, are required to take a survey each day to monitor themselves for symptoms of the coronavirus. Students living in university-owned housing are also required to complete the symptom monitoring daily.

The survey may be completed on a smartphone, tablet or computer, and it should take no more than five minutes.

Students will be required to receive a clearance certificate from the survey before entering the UCLA campus grounds or any UCLA facilities — except for their own campus housing residence. UCLA will keep the information about individuals’ symptoms confidential; that information will be shared only with designated campus officials who are involved in responding to the pandemic.

Upon completion of the survey, the system will either generate a clearance certificate or direct students to call the Ashe Center COVID-19 Hotline at 310-206-6217 for instructions prior to entering UCLA shared spaces.
