Going away to college supports academic, personal and social growth. Our campus is a place of self-discovery where students belong to a community that supports a True Bruin experience. Where a student lives is critical to the quality of the college experience. UCLA offers something for everyone, whether it is the social interaction and convenience of on-campus housing, independent living in University Apartments, or off-campus in privately owned apartments.



Since 1939, students have lived and learned on UCLA’s campus. With 22 residence halls and over a hundred off-campus apartments, explore the resources and opportunities that your Bruin has by clicking on the Housing link above.
