If you are already in the middle of campus, this video will show you how to find the Career Center from the Bruin Bear near Ackerman Union. Ruchi, one of our former Peer Advisors, leads the way.

If you are driving to campus, please continue reading for a map, parking information, and directions.

UCLA is located in Westwood, approximately ten miles north of the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Please note that freeway traffic can be unpredictable so give yourself plenty of time to drive safely and get here with time to spare. More details can be found at the UCLA Gateway, in the UCLA Transportation Services website, and in their parking map.
