Community Housing

Because of these unprecedented times, UCLA Housing is currently unable to guarantee or offer housing to many new and returning students. We understand students may wish to rent from privately owned apartments around the UCLA community. From this page, we hope you’re able to find some resources to help you navigate searching for an apartment.

Students are highly encouraged to take advantage of UCLA’s Student Legal Services as they have provided many resources as individuals consider signing a lease in this current environment.

Student Legal Services has also put together this helpful workshop on knowing your rights as a renter. 

USAC has also put together this helpful housing resource guide.
