The Department of Urban Planning will provide Visiting Scholars and Visiting Affiliates with a workspace (usually a shared office), a computer account and access to the Luskin School of Public Affairs computer network and e-mail system, access to the University libraries and the services of the UCLA Community Housing Office for assistance in locating housing in Los Angeles. Another good short-term housing option is the Hillside Residence Hall, which is located very close to our building. http://www.losangeleshillside.com/
Visiting Scholars and Visiting Affiliates are invited to participate in departmental lectures, seminars and other activities. They may audit classes, with the permission of the instructor. Unfortunately we are not able to provide Visiting Scholars or Affiliates with computers and we are unable to guarantee Visiting Graduate Researchers a workspace in the Luskin School of Public Affairs.
Under certain circumstances in which we have a formal exchange agreement with another institution, the Department of Urban Planning may offer special classes exclusively for Visiting Affiliates.
