As a convenience to students, we offer housing at a hostel that takes approximately 20 minutes by car to get to our classroom building. Students who sign up for a Los Angeles course will have the option during registration to add accommodations at the Hostelling International Santa Monica location. Adding a 2-night hostel stay costs $140 for March and $130 for our June weekend. Students who add housing through APW will stay in a shared room with 8 - 20 beds.

There will be a $50 administration fee for all housing refunds. Refunds only allowed up to 30 days prior to the weekend start date.


Other Housing Options

NOTE: Au Pair Weekend is not affiliated with and does not recommend any of the specific accommodations below. Please do your own research before choosing your weekend housing.


Note: UCLA has many different locations around the city; make sure you plan your trip around the WESTWOOD Campus!

Public Transportation

LA’s public transportation is not as robust as many other cities. If you’re interested in taking the bus or train to get around, read this beginner’s guide to public transportation in Los Angeles and utilize Google Maps' convenient public transit option when calculating travel times. You may still need to rely on Uber or Lyft to complete your journeys.

Travel Between Airports & Campus


If you are coming directly from LAX Airport, UCLA has a list of recommendations for how to get to campus. They also offer specific driving directions. Please note that Los Angeles traffic is unpredictable and it can take anywhere from 30 minutes - 1 hour to drive the 12 miles between LAX and our Westwood campus. 

Campus Parking

We recommend parking in UCLA Parking Structure 32 at 1070 Veteran Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90024. There are other UCLA parking structures nearby as well. 

The campus parking rate is $14 any time on any day with student validation. This is by far the easiest and most convenient option! Please read the signs when you arrive to be aware of any changes.
