Approximately one quarter of our students balance family life with the demands of their studies. Your classmates provide a wonderful support network, and we have additional resources to help your family integrate into the UCLA Anderson community.

“Moving to LA with your spouse and two-month-old baby to start a new adventure at business school would make anyone feel outside of their comfort zone. However, in the case of my family, the Anderson community immediately enveloped us with warmth and friendship, alleviating any feelings of trepidation. Our Anderson family has become a source of support and love while we have been here. It has been amazing to see my family feel included and loved in all things Anderson—from on-campus activities to off-campus meet ups, everyone at Anderson has become an extension of our small family.”
