Student Resources

Many students may have difficulty keeping up with their classes, maintaining academic motivation, staying physically and emotionally healthy, or overcoming economic or housing challenges that they face alone or within their families as a result of personal or societal life challenges. You are not alone! We want to make sure you are aware that UCLA has myriad resources available to help you and put you in touch with them to obtain assistance!

See the list below for some highlights. Keep in mind that there are many more, so if you are looking for a particular resource and are unsure of whom to ask, email the Undergradute Student Affairs Officer. You may book long appointments if you anticipate a need for more time to discuss issues such as potential withdrawal from winter quarter, referral to Case Management Services, or other resources available to meet your needs.
