Summer Discovery students live in their own air-conditioned residence hall in Hedrick Summit Suites, right next the Sunset Rec Pool and Hitch Basketball courts. This residence hall is exclusive to Summer Discovery students, so you can get to know your peers in a comfortable setting that’s separate from the university students. But, you're definitely not limited to the extensive resources on the campus, as weekend trips include Disneyland, Six Flags, beaches, Universal, baseball games, and more!
Our home on campus is Hedrick Summit Suites. You will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff who live together in one residence hall.
Whether you’re watching a movie or working on a group project, it’s great to live with your friends. And if you have any questions, your resident counselor (RC) lives down the hall and is there for you, 24/7.
Unique to Summer Discovery is our all-inclusive meal plan. Enjoy three meals every weekday, and two on the weekends in the modern Rieber Dining Hall. Choose from daily options at the salad bar, deli counter, pizza oven, stir fry station, dessert bar, and more. Are you a vegetarian? Do you have food allergies? Special diets are not a problem.
Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Summer Discovery students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are mandated for your safety. You are free to walk around campus or you can take the private shuttle bus to Westwood Village (our ‘home area’) with friends. If you have a question, RCs are on duty to help.
Not feeling well? The Summer Discovery staff can make all medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits. Appointments are made with Peak Health Medical Group, UCLA Urgent Care, or the UCLA Medical Center.
UCLA features extraordinary athletic and recreational facilities, and you have access to them all. Some of the athletes who have trained at UCLA include Odell Beckham Jr., LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, James Harden, and Chris Paul.
