Housing Construction

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.

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.

CONSTRUCTION IMPACT

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.
