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 while indoors if they are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations (including boosters). Those visitors who are up to date can choose to not wear masks indoors, although mask wearing is still strongly recommended.

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) should wear masks at all times at indoor events if they are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations (including boosters).

In some instances, attendees at campus events may be asked by event organizers to complete UCLA’s Symptom Monitoring Survey before entering venues or facilities. The brief web-based form can be filled out on a computer, tablet or smartphone.

After completing the survey, these attendees can obtain a clearance certificate for the event, if necessary, through the survey’s clearance portal:

For further details on entry requirements to events, see our guidance for campus events and guidance for guidance for athletic events.


Invited guests and third-party contractors

Non-affiliates — including guest lecturers, vendors, third-party contract workers and other external parties — who are learning, working or participating in programs regularly on campus must comply with UCLA’s health and safety requirements.

These requirements include wearing a mask at all times indoors if they are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations (including boosters) and the completion of UCLA’s Symptom Monitoring Survey before entering any campus areas, buildings or events.

See our guidance for campus events and guidance for guidance for athletic events for further information.


COVID testing: Non-affiliates on campus regularly

Those non-affiliates who are learning, working or participating in programs regularly on campus will also 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 if they are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations, but they 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.
