UCLA is a crossroads of ideas, cultures and limitless experiences and opportunities. The iconic UCLA campus is set in Westwood, one of the leading residential areas of Los Angeles, and is adjacent to Bel Air, Brentwood and Beverly Hills. The campus is easily accessible by car and public transportation from freeways and major thoroughfares. Theaters, sporting events, performances and leisure activities are all available either within or just beyond the borders of the UCLA campus.
UCLA leads the nation with 118 NCAA team championships and 13 total national championships. Students can purchase discounted tickets at the UCLA Central Ticket Office.
Presented by the UCLA Graduate Students Association and the ASUCLA Student Interaction Fund, Melnitz Movies exhibits free screenings of brand new, cult, and classic films.
The John Wooden Recreation and Sports Center offers multiple gyms, five racquetball/handball courts, a rock wall, two squash courts, a weight-training facility, exercise/dance rooms, a martial arts room and a games lounge.

Whether you are a graduate student who is married, a single parent, or a single graduate student, chances are you're looking for housing that offers independence, good value and safety as well as access to a community of fellow students. Graduate students usually live off campus in either private or university-owned apartments. UCLA University Apartments are considered by many to be the best value for the money and are in very high demand. Early application for university housing is strongly advised.
The UCLA Housing Services Office provides descriptions of University-owned apartments available to UCLA graduate students and students with family. Many students rent off-campus apartments in Brentwood, Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, and Westwood. The Community Housing Office provides information and current listings on private apartments, rooms in private homes, shared rentals, roommates, and temporary housing.
