Because of UCLA's rivalry with USC, there is no shortage of school spirit when it comes to sports. Football is no joke and our team is amazing. If you don't buy a DEN pass, you're typically the odd man out. Along with that, we have a large diversity of sports club that are just as competitive.

I've only used the computers a few times but the internet was quick. There's a small computer lab for each dorm area and there's always room. In the Young Research Library, you're allowed to check out Macs for about 2 hours. You can renew your time as well from online. The cool thing is, you can take the laptop anywhere, as long as you bring it back within the time limit.

If I could do it all over again, I most definitely would. I love UCLA!! I have no worries finding a job after graduation because our Career Center is ranked in the Top 10 in the nation.

Overall, the administration is pretty lenient and trusts the student body. Don't worry about them being on your case. This is UCLA. If you had the qualifications to gain admission here, you're in good shape. You're an adult so you're treated like one.

The academic programs at UCLA are world-class, and taught by top-notch faculty in the field. Trust me, it doesn't get better than this. Groundbreaking research is conducted here everyday and so there are endless ways to get involved in academic pursuits. The depth and breadth of what UCLA offers to its students is very high quality and keeps students on their toes, engaged, and passionate.
College Junior 2013-04-26T13:05:56Z
There are over 5,000 courses offered and over 150 majors. The academic enrichment, opportunities, and learning truly is world-class, the best of the best!

I feel pretty safe living in the dorms at UCLA. I hear stories of occasional thefts though but I believe that happens in every college campus.

Convenience of Housing – Housing is pretty great, and everything is very easy and convenient for the people that live in the dorms. There are laundry rooms, workout rooms, and the dining halls are extremely close to the dorms. There is also a cleaning service, so the only thing you need to do to to keep the room neat is to vacuum and take out the trash.

The weather is amazing! Always pretty hot, and the pools here are always crowded with people trying to get a tan. It obviously rains a bit during winter, but it's mostly great California weather.

Los Angeles is a great city. It's a cultural hub. Regardless of what you prefer you can find something to do. It's close to amazing museums, the beach and great nightlife.

A lot of students go watch the games on campus. The most popular ones are basketball and american football. There are buses that take you to the UCLA Rosebowl football stadium.

They're always bruinbus that runs around campus. There's also public buses in Westwood.

It's safe on campus. Off campus can be sketchy but not like the hellhole at U$C. Student Health is pretty good.

UCLA is in westwood, surrounded by Brentwood, Beverly Hills, and BelAir. I don't there is a safer place in Los Angeles. As a girl, I feel totally comfortable walking around the campus alone at night, and Westwood is totally safe as well (but travel with a buddy to be safe). Campus security is on top of their game: UCPD is prompt and seem to allows be floating around the apartments on weekends. Also, the Community Service Officers are student who are paid to do rounds on different parts of campus at night, and if you feel unsafe walking back to your room late at night, they will escort you there for peace of mind.
College Sophomore 2013-04-08T10:32:42Z
UCLA is actually really strict about partying in the dorms. RAs do rounds and there are announced room inspections. We aren't allowed to have any alcohol bottles (closed, open, empty, or full) in the rooms and definately no weed. They are really strict about this stuff, and its annoying, but the reason I gave it a C is that getting writtn up (the typical punishment for this) is NOT a big deal. Usually it just involves talking to an adult member of the Office of Residential Life and maybe completing an online course module of alcohol safety or something.

You're in luck, I was a housing tour guide for UCLA Bruin Day, our admit weekend. Here's a break down of each type of dorm on the "hill."
names- sproul, sproul cove/landing, rieber, hedrick, dykstra
setup/amenities- shared bathroom in hallway (one for boys, one for girls), coed floors, doubles or triples, two lounges per floor
pros- REALLY social, these are the dorms where you get to know who you're living with the most. This is the true college experience.
cons- small rooms (especially triples), loud all the time
names- de neve dorms, reiber terrace/vista, hedrick summit
setup- air conditioning!!! doubles/triples with bathroon shared between two rooms, 2 lounges per floor
pros- really nice living arrangement, rooms are bigger than halls, most 2nd years, quieter, cleaner
cons- less social than halls
names- hitch and saxon
setup- two bedrooms (doubles or triples) with a shower and living room area, separated by buildings, less than 100 people per building
pros- TONS of space, good for having people over, quieter
cons- not the freshman experience, pretty antisocial (you have you really put yourself out there and seek out friends here), way less of a community, expensive
other than housing, food at ucla is the best, seriously.
College Sophomore 2013-04-08T09:35:33Z
Off campus housing is great at UCLA! Because most people have left the dorms by their third-year at the latest, all of the apartments around the campus are taken over by UCLA students. Most of the apartments are within 5-10 minutes campus walking, which is really convenient, and the area around UCLA is super safe, so their's no issues walking back to your apartment off-campus late at night. The only this is that westwood is a little expensive, but if you decide to live farther from campus, the rent goes dow a lot (and their is a shuttle that will take you their that runs really often).

UCLA is in a truly ideal location. No matter what your interest is, there is something for you to do, guaranteed. The shopping is, of course, fantastic (especially at the Grove, Melrose, and the Beverly Center). Hollywood and the beach are only short bus rides away, as are music venues and museums. Many places offer student discounts, so take advantage and see the sights!
Recent Alumnus 2013-04-05T06:26:01Z
While the dorm buildings are nice now that they've been renovated, they are still barely big enough for three students to live in comfortably. However, the packed dorms mean you have more opportunities to make friends. Plus, the dining halls are attached to the dorms, making food very accessible.
College Junior 2013-04-05T05:07:35Z
The sports that are most popular are Football and Men's basketball. There's a "Den Pass," that you purchase in order to watch these two sports. The bleachers are always packed and people are always excited to watch the sports. There are a lot of sports to watch but it seems like these two are the most popular and most watched.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
