UCLA Campus Life

This website provides information about available resources that can assist students interested in maintaining and/or exploring a religious and spiritual identity. We recognize that spirituality and a faith tradition can be an important aspect of a student’s identity and experience at UCLA, and are committed to creating connections with campus and off-campus resources that can assist students in these pursuits.

Check out Religious Student Organizations to explore all of the different clubs that students can join.
