  • Universal Student Housing apartment in Westwood is a cool place for international students! Great location! My friends and I enjoyed the comfortable apartments and the pool on sunny days! This off-campus UCLA housing is surrounded by students from all over the world. Next to UCLA campus and just a few minutes walking from the Westwood Village, bus stops, supermarkets and restaurants.

  • "I have already lived with my host and she is very nice. She takes me to go shopping every week and even lets me join with dinner with her neighbor. Sometimes we cook dinner together, and I am very happy to learn how to cook western dishes. As an international student I'm very glad to talk with her and she is always so nice to help me correct my pronunciation and teach me lots of new words I have never used before. I really enjoy it so much! Thank you very much indeed for finding such a good homestay for me. I feel so lucky!"
