Frequently asked questions

While instruction will remain primarily remote for spring and summer 2021, 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. For more, visit our Return to Campus page.

The UCLA Center for Accessible Education offers a page of resources.

The Charles E. Young Research Library, the Hugh and Hazel Darling Law Library and the Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library are currently open at reduced capacity to UCLA students, faculty and staff. The Library Special Collections Ahmanson–Murphy Reading Room also will soon open with limited seating and hours.

Seat reservations are required for these spaces (see law library access), and entrants to these buildings will be required to wear a face covering, show their BruinCard and a COVID-19 symptom-monitoring clearance certificate, and present their seat reservation confirmation.

Additional libraries are expected to open in phases, first at 25% capacity and ramping up to 50% as restrictions are loosened.

While most UCLA Library buildings remain closed, the libraries continue to provide an array of resources for students, faculty and instructors. Additional research and teaching support for both students and faculty can be found here.

Faculty course materials: While print reserves are currently not available from the UCLA Library for instructional purposes, library staff will help faculty and instructors obtain electronic materials for their courses. In some cases, they will digitize content from library-owned materials and provide them to faculty and instructors through course management systems. For further information on course materials, visit the library’s Information for Instructors page. To submit digitization requests, see the Faculty Reserves page.
