UCLA housing types

Hi! I'm thinking about going to UCLA, but I'm curious about the housing situation there. Can current students or recent admits tell me more about the different types of on-campus housing options available at UCLA?

Hi there! UCLA offers a variety of on-campus housing options to cater to the diverse needs and preferences of students. Here are the main types of housing available:

1. Residence Halls: These are traditional dormitory-style buildings with shared rooms, typically housing 2-3 students per room. They are usually set up in the Coed-By-Room configuration, meaning that the building itself is coed, with separate restrooms for each gender. Residence halls include both shared and private restrooms and lounges on each floor. Some popular residence halls at UCLA are Dykstra, Hedrick, and Rieber.

2. Deluxe Residence Halls: Similar to standard residence halls but with additional amenities such as air conditioning, increased living space, and a more modern design. Examples include De Neve and Sproul halls.

3. Suites: Suites are apartment-style housing with a cluster of rooms connected by a living area and a bathroom. Each suite typically has 3-4 bedrooms with 2-3 residents per room. Some suites also include a small kitchenette. UCLA offers options such as Hitch and Saxon suites, which provide a more home-like and private living experience.

4. On-Campus Apartments: These apartments are designed for upperclassmen and graduate students. They feature private bedrooms, full kitchens, living areas, and private bathrooms. Students are responsible for providing their own furniture and maintaining the apartment. Examples include University Village and Westwood Chateau apartments.

5. Plazas: Plazas are similar to suites but often have more extensive amenities and individual air conditioning in each room. Most plazas offer private or semi-private bathrooms and all rooms have a mini-fridge and a microwave. Sunset Village and Rieber Terrace are examples of plazas at UCLA.

Each housing option has its own advantages in terms of living arrangements, amenities, and community aspects. Selecting the right housing depends on your personal preferences and priorities such as privacy, proximity to campus, and social opportunities. To learn more about on-campus housing options, you can visit UCLA's housing website (https://housing.ucla.edu/housing). Good luck!
