Anyone had any luck or anything with staying on campus of UCLA?

I've heard some other people in other parts of the world that say if you rock up and say your thinking of studying there next semester but you want to stay a few days and see what its like, you can stay in a dorm room for like $80-$100 a night? Anyone know if this is possible?

Would be nice to catch some frat parties while i'm in town

I've never heard of this but all the schools I've visited made me stay in a local hotel. Occasionally, the hotels give you a small discount if you say you're visiting the school. But I've never visited UCLA, did you check out their website?

If youre an actual prospective student, schools will let you stay in the dorms for free. Althgouh it may be only if youve been accepted. If you look like a student, you can probably crash parties and no one will notice. I assume youre a guy, or you wouldnt be asking.

UCLA has a Guest House on campus...rates start at $105 per night.

When are you thinking of visiting UCLA?
