UNIVERSITY COOPERATIVE HOUSING ASSOCIATION
Affordable Housing for UCLA students
THE CO-OP AND ITS' MISSION
A Bit of Background
The University Cooperative Housing Association (UCHA) provides reasonably cost housing to qualified students, visiting scholars and faculty of UCLA and other nearby educational institutions. Our student co-op is located just two blocks from campus (within walking distance)and have been serving the UCLA community for over seventy years.
WHAT WE DO
Making A Difference
The Co-op hires limited full-time staff to help facilitate the day-to-day operation of the organization. Every member is responsible for performing one four-hour chore shift per week. The types of chore shifts available include: Facilities, kitchen, office, mail sorting, gardening, computer room, security, social events etc.
The Co-op offers an exceptional opportunity to meet students from the United States and from around the world, and become involved in community and university activities. We are an independent organization run by and for the students who live here. We rely on the participation of our membership to make this a successful alternative to high-cost apartments, residence halls, fraternities and sororities.
The Co-op has a variety of facilities available for the use of its members. Study rooms, laundry rooms, a computer room, TV rooms, piano, ping-pong and foosball tables are all available. In addition, UCLA’s Sunset Recreation Center, with tennis courts, an Olympic size swimming pool and sauna, is only three blocks away.
THREE BUILDINGS >> ONE COOP
UCHA owns three buildings, two are side by side and the third one across the street, with a total housing capacity of over 400 students.
