Living in Los Angeles
Imagine coming to work every day to a climate as mild as an ocean breeze. To a campus at the hub of our global community. To a place where world-class arts venues, museums, architectural gems, festivals, and athletics are second to none. And where cuisines from every part of the world are only a step away.

Living in Los Angeles has its advantages. And coming to work at UCLA places you right in the center of them. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what some Angelenos have to say:

Steve Gamer, Associate Vice Chancellor, Development:
“To me Los Angeles means great outdoor life. I can ski and go to the beach in the same day. Or I can get up in the morning, take the family on a bike ride along the beach and stop for breakfast at a restaurant right along the water.”

Patricia Roderick, Senior Director of Development, Neurology:
“My palate never gets bored In Los Angeles. From Korean to Thai to Russian to Ethiopian, a culinary adventure awaits you – in some parts of the city literally around every corner.”
