The campus housing office is located at 945 Weyburn Terrace, #116, and at ext. 3-1300.

Identification cards (BruinCards) also function as your library card. Cards can be obtained through the BruinCard Office at Room 123 Kerckhoff Hall between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The extension is 5-2336. It is best to bring proof of employment which faculty can obtain from a member of the Academic Personnel team.
Leave Without Pay
If you choose not to pay for your benefits when you are on leave, you must cancel your benefits for the time you are away. See Academic Personnel Manager for assistance. If you do cancel your benefits, it is important to request reinstatement as soon as you return from leave. Parking must also be cancelled, otherwise you will be retroactively charged upon your return for parking during the time of your leave. A leave without pay will also affect your service credit for retirement calculations. If you have the option of transferring funds through UCLA to take your leave (e.g. Fulbright fellowship), this may be the better option. If you are unsure, please speak with the Dept. Manager.
Promotion / Merit Increases (Tenure Track Faculty)
You will be notified in March if you are eligible for advancement for the following year. The Academic Personnel Manager will send out detailed instructions on how to prepare a dossier for a promotion or merit increase after receiving your written request for consideration.
