Directions and Transportation

Location on Google Maps
The UCLA campus is located in West Los Angeles, accessible from the nearby Interstate 405 and 10 freeways. The main campus is bounded by Sunset Boulevard on the north and Le Conte Avenue on the south; the east border is Hilgard Avenue and the west border is Gayley Avenue.

The closest major airport is Los Angeles International (LAX), approximately fifteen miles south of the campus. Driving time from LAX varies depending on the day of the week and time of day you are traveling. During non-rush hour traffic times, plan on about a 45-minute drive between the campus and LAX; during rush hour traffic, plan on an hour or more.

From LAX, take the 405 Freeway north to the Sunset Boulevard exit. Continue east on Sunset for several blocks, moving into the right hand lane. Enter the campus at Westwood Plaza and continue straight into Parking Structure 4.


Parking is complimentary to Northridge 20 attendees at Parking Structure 4. Inform the parking attendant that you have come for the Northridge Symposium.
