Our Exceptional Meeting Facilities
UCLA Conference Services is proud to offer exceptional conference and meeting facilities to accommodate a vast array of special events. From training sessions and corporate retreats, to formal dinners, receptions, and all types of social occasions, UCLA’s Sunset Village and De Neve Plaza venues can easily and comfortably accommodate groups of up to 500 or smaller meetings of 20. For larger groups or unique event settings, the main campus also features a variety of special venues – including outdoor gardens, plazas, and theaters.

Sunset Village Meeting Spaces

Located in the heart of the Sunset Village housing complex, Covel Commons is a meeting and dining facility that offers several conference venues. Upon entering this state-of-the-art meeting space, you will be greeted by a dramatic three-story spiral staircase that leads up to our premiere conference venue – the 5,925-square foot Grand Horizon Ballroom. With its high vaulted ceilings, 40-foot projection screen, and wall of hugely paned windows, this space was designed for large theater-style presentations, banquets, and receptions. Floor-to-ceiling sliding partitions also allow this space to be divided into seven smaller salons.

The adjoining 3,700-square foot outdoor Terrace features a spectacular panoramic view of the campus and makes for a stunning backdrop for any outdoor social event. The adjacent North Ridge, West Coast, and South Bay rooms are ideal for smaller breakout sessions. Covel Commons also features two fully-equipped computer labs to help round out this multi-purpose space.

The Northwest Campus Auditorium, also located in Sunset Village, seats up to 350 individuals and is an ideal choice for multimedia presentations, teleconferences, lectures, film screenings, or small theatrical performances. This space features a professional-grade projection, lighting and sound booth, an 850-square foot stage, two dressing rooms, and a lobby area that is perfect for event registration and refreshment breaks.

De Neve Plaza Meeting Spaces

Located just south of Covel Commons, De Neve Plaza features the 3,700-square foot Plaza Room which can be divided into two spacious salons. The adjacent 430-seat Lecture Auditorium is masterfully designed and features professional-quality acoustics, lighting, and video capabilities. Several other meeting rooms, including a fully-equipped computer lab, round out the versatile collection of spaces available in De Neve Plaza.
