Humanities Residential College


The Humanities Living Learning Community aims to create a unique first-year experience for its residents. Through active tours of local cultural institutions, creative programs, and innovative seminars with faculty, students will explore Los Angeles together and gain a better understanding of Humanistic study. This community brings together the diversity within Los Angeles and the field of Humanities to help its students forge a path to the future by exploring the past.

HRC students are also eligible to participate in programs sponsored by the UCLA Division of Humanities, such as talks by professors, cultural events, or trips to museums, restaurants, and concerts with other students.

All students, regardless of major, are invited to participate in the Humanities Residential College. All you need is your passion to make living in the HRC a successful and enjoyable experience!

The Humanities LLC is located in Hedrick Hall.
