UCLA is recognized worldwide for excellence in academics and athletics. It is consistently ranked as one of America’s top 25 universities and has more NCAA team championships than any other school. With its suburban location in a beautiful Los Angeles neighborhood, UCLA is the perfect setting for a summer middle school program.
Our home on campus is Hedrick Hall. You will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff living together in one residence hall. At Jr. Discovery at UCLA everyone is welcome and everyone belongs.
Whether you’re watching a movie or playing games in the lounge, it’s great to live with your new friends. And if you have any questions, your Resident Counselor (RC) lives down the hall and is there for you 24/7.
HERE’S OUR SET UP:
DELICIOUS ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT DINING
Eat in the modern Rieber dining hall. Enjoy 3 meals every weekday and 2 on the final day, when on campus. Choose from daily options at the salad bar, deli counter, pizza oven, stir fry station, dessert bar, and more. Vegetarian? Food Allergy? Special diets are not a problem.
YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY ARE OUR PRIMARY CONCERN
Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of UCLA Accelerated Middle School students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are used for your safety. We walk you to your courses and chaperone all-group activities and trips. If you have a question, just ask your RC.
Not feeling well? Our staff make all medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits.
