Dykstra Hall

First Residence Hall on the UCLA Hill!

Dykstra Hall is named after Clarence Dykstra, former Professor, Provost and Vice President at UCLA. During his time, Dr. Dykstra crusaded for student housing. He ended UCLA’s 40-year-status as a commuter college, and on November 19, 1959, though he wasn’t alive to see it, the first residence hall was completed and appropriately named Dykstra Hall.

The first residence hall in the country to jointly house men and women under one roof, Dykstra Hall has lived up to Clarence’s expectations for fostering cultural and intellectual life.

Dykstra’s Back

Being the oldest on the hill, Dykstra was in need of some TLC. So, after being closed for an entire academic year, Dykstra was reopened for 2013-2014! With brand new carpeting, modernized light fixtures and an overall more aesthetically pleasing look and design, residents are going to be proud to call Dykstra home.

Dykstra Hall Theme Community, Global Health

Dykstra 5 hosts Dykstra’s only theme community, the Global Health Theme community! Residents of this community have the opportunity to connect with staff and faculty who teach in a variety of related fields at UCLA as well as the greater Los Angeles community. Residents have access to resources related to finding internships, volunteer work, jobs and other opportunities in Global Health. The two Resident Assistants serving the global Health community were carefully selected for their interests and experiences in this area. They have at their fingertips a variety of helpful resources for residents and they plan multiple intentional programs & lectures geared toward resident interests.
