Should I live on-campus or off-campus? What is the best process for finding an apartment in LA? Which neighborhoods are popular with UCLA Anderson students? How much cash will I need to put down for an apartment? These are all great questions to ask as you begin the process of getting settled.
Student housing can be found on- and off-campus. Some space is available in University-owned apartments, which are very affordable, convenient, and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. An application is required so we strongly advise that you apply early. Single graduate campus apartments and married/family apartments are available. Please visit the Housing Website for more information.
Many MBA students opt to rent off-campus, privately-owned housing in the popular and convenient neighborhoods of Brentwood, Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Westwood and the South Bay area, which includes a number of different communities. UCLA is located in Westwood, but Brentwood, Santa Monica, and West Los Angeles are fairly close to campus. Two-thirds of UCLA's students choose to live within five miles of campus, half of that number within a mile. The Community Housing Office at UCLA has more detailed information available on its website that provides descriptions of Los Angeles neighborhoods, cost information and roommate/apartment listings.
