resTV(22)

Welcome to resTV(22) - Residential Telelvision. We are the video production team within the UCLA Residential Life’s Integrated Media team (iMedia). We air programming 24/7 in your residence facility (on UCLA Cable Channel 22) and our content is also available online at the resTV YouTube Channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/resTVUCLA).

What is resTV?

resTV is the abbreviated name for the UCLA Office of Residential Life iMedia resTV(22) - Residential Television operation. We are a multi-faceted, award winning, on-campus residential television production and distribution entity - which is conveniently located in UCLA’s De Neve Plaza residential community. resTV was developed by the UCLA Office of Residential Life (ORL) in the early 1990s, and is one of a limited number of “housing based” national college television operations.

resTV (UCLA’s Channel 22) went “on-air” in the fall of 1998 with a combination of original programs and electronic message board announcements; resTV’s online efforts began in Fall 2007 and have expanded our viewership beyond the UCLA community environment. During the academic year (weeks 0-9), resTV develops and distributes new/original programming; our primary audience is the UCLA residential student population, but we know that our programming reaches audiences on campus and beyond.

resTV is a collaborative operation, through which our student staff members and volunteers interface with: ORL Professional Staff Team Members; UCLA Faculty (including On Campus Housing Faculty-in-Residence Mentors & Advisors); ORL and Housing team; and UCLA residential students.

The resTV operation offers a wide range of services and involvement opportunities:

  • TV Production Studio located in #343C - De Neve Plaza Commons building
  • resTV(22) television channel (Channel #22 on the UCLA Cable Service) - which operates 24/7 all year long
  • Team of 20 part-time students, including: Video Production Student Supervisors, Video Production Assistants; Graphic Specialist; Computer Specialist; Still Photographer; Work Study Office Assistants
  • Volunteer opportunities: VPC (Video Production Committee) or showcasing your talents (acting, broadcast journalism, music, etc.) in our resTV productions
