Transfer Experience


The Transfer Experience provides a supportive environment for transfer students to successfully transition into UCLA’s culture and community. At UCLA we recognize the needs of transfer students vary significantly than that of the incoming freshman class and it is our hope that all transfer students feel the inclusion and pride associated with becoming a Bruin. The Transfer Experience offers housing solely with other transfer students and provides programs designed to meet the needs of our fantastic transfers!

Benefits Include: Interacting and building community with fellow transfer students, being part of a close-knit community looking to explore UCLA and the Los Angeles area, programming focused on campus academic and social resources, and an opportunity to network with faculty in several areas of interest.

The Transfer Experience is located in De Neve Holly .
