About Student Affairs


Student Affairs is a network of more than 25 programs, services, and experiences that will connect with the life of every UCLA student during his or her collegiate career. In many cases, our connection begins as early as elementary and middle school with students who participate in our Early Academic Outreach Programs.

The UCLA Admission Office typically receives more than 90,000 applications for admission each year – more than any other campus in the country. For the students who ultimately become Bruins, our Financial Aid and Scholarships Office will process some form of assistance for more than 21,000 UCLA students. The Registrar’s Office tracks courses and grades for 39,000-plus students from their first day on campus until they graduate. The Office of Residential Life offers an enormous variety of academic support programs, cultural programs, and opportunities for personal development to over 12,000 Bruins each year.

Health and Wellness is one of our first priorities for students. We offer comprehensive medical care through our Ashe Student Health and Wellness Center, including access to one of the highest rated hospitals in the nation, located on the UCLA campus. Likewise, our Counseling and Psychological Services offer care options that range from wellness workshops to group therapy and long-term individual counseling. UCLA Recreation operates 14 different recreation venues with dozens of exercise and fitness programs, intramural athletics, and facilities for individual workouts.

We offer support for our diverse population of graduate students, transfer students, international students, LGBTQ students, student veterans, parenting students, and many more.

Our departments also facilitate student’s social involvement in campus life and the broader community. We advise dozens of sororities and fraternities, and thousands of student groups with special areas of interest that span the range from the arts, to science, to religion. And when students begin thinking about life after UCLA, the Career Center gives them access to potential employers through job fairs, interviews, internships, and more.
