Interdisciplinary teaching and research is a particular strength, with initiatives in the arts, stem cells and other biosciences, nanoscience, international studies and the environment.
Our freshmen and transfer students have a 91% success and progress rate – that’s the percentage who graduate or remain in good standing after four years (two for transfers).
Campus Life and Diversity
There are almost 40,000 students at UCLA, roughly 27,000 undergraduates and 13,000 graduate and professional students. The student body is diverse both in cultural and economic terms.
More than 9,500 undergraduates live as part of the on-campus community, in residence halls, plazas and suites “on the hill.”
L.A. Culture and Lifestyle
The campus is a cultural magnet for the entire Southern California region. UCLA Live! performances fill Royce Hall with enthusiastic audiences for music, dance and the spoken word. The Hammer museum is a showplace for emerging artists, with a rich public offering of forums, readings, lectures and family programs. The Fowler museum explores global arts and cultures, past and present.
UCLA Sports are also an important part of the L.A. lifestyle, from football at the Rose Bowl to basketball in Pauley Pavilion. UCLA was the first university to win 100 NCAA team championships.
