At UCLA Housing we have an ambitious long-term goal: to guarantee a place in university-owned housing to all incoming freshmen for all four years of their college career and to all incoming transfer students for two years.
Currently we guarantee incoming freshman students three years of university-owned housing but we still have farther to go to reach our goal of a four-year guarantee. See our entire housing master plan.
To get closer to our goal, we are breaking ground on three new projects this fall. Learn more about each project below and find out how the construction will impact you.
If you have any questions about our construction and renovation projects, call our Construction Hotline at (310) 206-7800.
