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.
Currently we guarantee incoming freshman students three years of university-owned housing but we still have farther to go to reach our goal of a four-year guarantee. See our entire housing master plan.
To get closer to our goal, we are breaking ground on three new projects this fall. 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.
Lot 15 Residence Hall
The Lot 15 Residence Hall project will provide 1,781 beds of on-campus housing for first- and second-year undergraduates. The students will be housed in a new 343,600-gross-square-foot (GSF) residence hall complex accommodating 311,700 GSF of residential space and 31,900 GSF of common space in two eight-level mid-rise structures.
For the 2018–2019 academic year, students living on The Hill can anticipate construction activity between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. Residents of Hitch Suites and Saxon Suites will be most impacted, as well as residents of Hedrick Hall, Hedrick Summit, Rieber Hall, Rieber Terrace, and Rieber Vista.
Southwest Campus Apartments
The Southwest Campus Apartments Project is located on the existing Warren Hall and Hillblom Center site in the Southwest campus zone, at 900 Weyburn Place North. The Project will accommodate approximately 321 graduate beds and 1,958 upper-division undergraduate beds in a combination of two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments, with the majority of them 4 Bedrooms/4 Beds for graduates and 4 Bedrooms/8 Beds for undergraduates. Student support space will include ground level multi-purpose space, common study, meeting, mailroom and laundry facilities. The development will consist of (3) 8-10 story buildings totaling up to 591,100 GSF.

De Neve Dining Renovation
Improvements are being made to De Neve Dining on the ground level. We are renovating the central bakery facility to support the current demand of our dining locations on The Hill and we are updating the De Neve kitchen to better support the De Neve Dining serving stations.
Residents of De Neve Plaza (Acacia & Birch) and Dykstra Hall can expect noise and dust Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from now until early September 2018.
To minimize the impact to you and your room, we suggest that you keep your windows closed during construction hours.
De Neve Dining will remain open and serving meals during this renovation project. The only change will be to the breakfast hours, which are now 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Rieber Hall Laundry Room Construction
Renovations are being made to the first floor of Rieber Hall to add a central laundry room. This is part of an on-going project to upgrade all the Classic Residence Halls so that there are more machines in a central location of each building. The new machines will use BruinCard/Visitor Cards instead of quarters and will be part of the Laundry Alert system.
Residents of Rieber Hall can expect noise and dust Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the vicinity of the new laundry room.
To minimize the impact to you and your room, we suggest that you keep your windows closed during construction hours. Earplugs are available at the Rieber Hall Front Desk for the duration of the project.
