General public

The campus is open to the general public. Visitors to UCLA are expected to abide by all guidance posted throughout campus and to comply with health and safety requirements, including wearing a mask at all times while indoors.

Tours of the campus — including in-person tours, virtual tours narrated by current UCLA students and self-guided tours — are available to the public, prospective students and their families. Please see the Undergraduate Admission campus tours page for more information and availability.


Members of the public attending campus events

Those attending events on campus (and who are not third-party contractors or specifically invited guests) must show proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID-19 test within the previous 72 hours.

Tests: Results of both PCR and antigen tests are acceptable as proof. Attendees showing proof of a negative test must provide a photo ID and documentation from a test provider or lab (either printed or on a smartphone) that includes the test result, the person’s name, the date of the test and the type of test.

For more information, see our Guidance for campus events page.


Invited guests and third-party contractors

All guest lecturers; vendors; third-party contract workers; external parties participating in trainings, programs or other organized events; and other invited guests defined as “covered non-affiliates” in the UC COVID-19 Vaccination Program Policy must comply with UCLA’s health and safety requirements, including universal indoor masking while on campus and the completion of UCLA’s Symptom Monitoring Survey before coming onto campus.

In addition, non-affiliates should be prepared to verify their vaccination status or provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within the previous 72 hours before entering any campus areas, buildings or events to which they have been invited. (See Guidance for campus events.)


COVID testing: Non-affiliates on campus for more than one day

Those non-affiliates who will be on campus for more than one day will be required to complete COVID-19 testing, as outlined in our Community Screening Protocol.

Individuals can access a self-administered test at 300 Bradley Hall or another test distribution site on campus. More information is available on the Ashe Center’s COVID-19 testing page.

Note: Delivery personnel and workers involved in similar activities must wear masks when entering UCLA buildings but are not subject to symptom monitoring or testing requirements, even though they may be making deliveries to multiple buildings over the course of a day.
