This diversity, combined with UCLA’s remarkable educational resources, reputation for academic distinction, athletic excellence, spirited student body, andsuperb location, create an ideal setting for our pre-college enrichment program.

Living and Learning Together in One Residence Hall
All Summer Discovery students live together in one residence hall—a special feature of our programs. This enables students and staff to develop the close-knitcommunity of living under one roof. Although our students benefit from the greater university community, they have a distinct “home” on campus, which provides immeasurable social, educational and safety benefits.
