Is student housing available?

If COVID-19 restrictions continue to be rolled back and guidance from county and state health authorities permits, UCLA hopes to offer housing to the following groups in the fall:

  • All freshman students.
  • All students with an institutional need, in accordance with established eligibility criteria.
  • As many first-year transfer students and sophomores as possible.

Graduate student housing will continue to be offered as usual.

The amount of housing UCLA can offer is directly tied to Los Angeles County Department of Public Health mandates, so while we unfortunately cannot guarantee housing for the upcoming academic year, we will make available as much of our housing inventory as we can. If we are not able to accommodate everyone in the fall, additional housing is expected to be available starting in winter quarter 2022, and we may be able to make offers to more students at that time.

Students who do not fall into one of the above groups but who plan to return to campus should secure housing off-campus in privately owned accommodations.

More information about both on-campus and off-campus housing is available on the UCLA Housing website.
