Apartments for Rent Near University of California, Los Angeles - UCLA

UCLA has long been one of the most prestigious universities in the nation, recognized as a “Public Ivy” and serving as one of the city’s premier cultural wellsprings. In addition to the top-notch academic and research functions of the institution, the campus is home to popular attractions like the Fowler Museum and the Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden. The university also operates the influential Hammer Museum and Geffen Playhouse nearby.

Living close to campus can be a very pricey proposition, with many luxury neighborhoods filling the area. Bordered by Beverly Hills, Bel AirBrentwood and Century City, multimillion dollar homes are par for the course; however, the west side of campus between Gayley Avenue and Veteran Avenue tends to have a fairly wide availability of more budget-friendly apartments and rental houses, allowing many students and faculty members to find convenient accommodations without breaking the bank. Living near UCLA puts you in one of Los Angeles’ most exciting areas, with no shortage of things to occupy your free time. Westwood Village just south of campus is a popular walking district filled with shopping and dining options, multiple country clubs sit within just a few blocks, and beautiful natural areas like Santa Monica Beach and Topanga State Park are only a short drive away.
