2020-2021 Academic Year

Undergraduate Residents in On-Campus Housing and University Apartments

  • In normal times, UCLA is able to offer housing to a majority of incoming and returning students. At this point, it is unclear how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact our operations in student housing and residential life during the 2020-21 Academic Year and therefore we are unfortunately unable to provide a housing guarantee. 

Graduate Residents

  • It is unclear how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact our operations in student housing and residential life during the 2020-21 Academic Year. However, we do not anticipate canceling any eligible student's 2020-2021 Housing Contracts and Rental Agreements in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

2019-2020 Academic Year

Housing recognizes that we are all facing a challenging situation right now and we are here to support you in making the best decision for yourself regarding your housing. We know that your university housing could be your permanent home, and not all students can or want to leave. Please know that Housing and Residential Life are here for any student who needs to stay.  We are not closing and will continue to support students who would like to stay until the end of their contract.

Once you have finalized your move out date, please visit the online application portal to submit your NITV. After you log in, please choose the NITV option on the menu bar and complete the necessary fields.
