Resident Perspective

  • “This is better than living in an apartment, you get to meet people, and get a head in.”
  • “It enriches my perspective being with diverse student backgrounds, I like how people think differently.”
  • “It is nice because you no longer feel alone in your frustrations, you have a support network.”
  • “Transferring into a UC can be an uncomfortable step but having people around you walking through the same experience has made it a lot less daunting”
  • “I love living in the transfer dorms. As a transfer it makes it much easier to socialize with people my age. It is also great that everyone is in the same boat and we all came knowing how college is structured”
  • “Coming from another country and being able to find people that are also new to UCLA and who have the same problems and doubts as you makes the whole transition much easier and enjoyable”
