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.
To get closer to our goal, we have broken ground on three new projects. 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.
