The University Cooperative Housing Association (UCHA) provides reasonably cost housing to qualified students, visiting scholars and faculty of UCLA and other nearby educational institutions. UCHA was incorporated in 1938 to provide reasonable-cost student housing for those who might not be able to afford other alternatives while attending UCLA. The Co-Op owes its success to many generations of students and staff who have worked together and contribute to the continuation of this unique housing organization.
Our purpose is to provide affordable, quality housing to the UCLA academic community, emphasizing the social welfare of members before profit.
