Ground Transportation

The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the closest airport to UCLA. You may also fly into Ontario International Airport or Burbank Airport. Taxis and shuttles meet all arriving flights and cost approximately $56. The Los Angeles International Airport is about 40 minutes from UCLA. Whether taking a taxi or shuttle, it would be wise to bring the driving directions below for the driver, to facilitate finding the housing check-in area.


From the 405 Freeway, exit on Sunset Blvd. and go east on Sunset until you reach Bellagio. Make a RIGHT on Bellagio and enter the UCLA campus. Bellagio will end at DeNeve Drive. Turn left at DeNeve and proceed on DeNeve down the hill to the Sunset Village (SV) parking garage (you will pass one stop sign just prior to reaching the parking garage). Enter the SV parking garage and proceed to the 30 minute loading zone area on level 1. Shuttles/Taxis should drop you off in the 30-minute loading zone area. You may also park temporarily in this area while you unload your belongings and check-in.

Take the elevator in the southwest corner of the parking garage to the Lobby (L) level. Once on the ā€œLā€ level, the Covel Commons building will be directly in front of you. Turn right and walk along the outside of the building. Turn left at the corner of the building and registration will be outside in the plaza area.

Maps of the UCLA campus: Registration on Thursday is in Sunset Village Plaza (Section 3C on the PDF map).

A UCLA parking permit is required to park a vehicle on campus. Vehicles without parking permits, after the 30 minute unloading time, will be subject to fines.


Parking passes can be purchased from the DeNeve and Sproul Hall front desks. The cost is $12.00 per day.
