Day-Of Information

Schedule of Events

8am - 4pm Check-in @ Flagpole
9am - 5pm Classes @ Kaplan/Haines
12pm - 1pm Lunch @ Perloff Quad


Student drop-off will be at the UCLA Flagpole, shown in the map below. This is also where check-in will be. Check-in starts at 8am. Classes will be held in Kaplan Hall and Haines Hall. There will be signs and staff to guide you. This will also be the pick-up location unless you and your guardian arrange otherwise.

See here for more information on how to get to UCLA, including public transportation methods. Here is an interactive map of UCLA campus.

If a school bus is dropping students off, the bus drop-off location is at Dickson Court South BruinBus Stop, located on the southbound side of Charles E Young Drive E. The bus stop is not marked on Google Maps, but is visible in Street View. No bus parking is available.


Parking is available at Parking Structure 2, shown below. We unfortunately cannot provide free parking for private vehicles. There are pay stations that accept cash or credit within the parking structure, but they DO NOT give change. You must pay BEFORE leaving your vehicle. The parking rate is $3 (1 hour) to $12 (all day). More information can be found on the UCLA Transportation wesbite.

Check-In and Waiver Reminder

The check-in table will be just about 100 feet from the drop-off location, at the UCLA Flagpole. Please see the above map for reference. You will probably see it, but there will be signs to guide you there as well. Check-in starts at 8am. Try to be there sooner than later to avoid traffic and long waits! After 10am check-in move to Headquarters in Kaplan A30 (downstairs).

Don’t forget to sign and bring the liability waiver and the multimedia release form! The liability waiver needs to be signed for you to participate in Splash. You don’t have to sign the multimedia release form if you don’t want us to take pictures of you. Once you submit these at check-in, we will give you your name tag and your class schedule with classroom locations.

If a class you really wanted is filled up, you go to our Class Changes station the day-of and see if you can enroll in that class in case other students didn't show up (no guarantee though!)


Lunch will be served at noon. There will be pizza (cheese, pepperoni, vegetarian). There is also very limited supply of vegan lunch options and we are currently unable to provide gluten-free options. If you have any dietary restrictions, please consider bringing your own lunch!

Parents Program

We are providing our first Parents Program this year! Please go to the Parents tab for the schedule of events. Other things that you can explore and enjoy while the students are in classes include the Botanical Garden, Sculpture Garden, Fowler Museum, or Hammer Museum.

Bring a Water Bottle!

Environmentally-friendly bottle filling stations are available around campus. Stay hydrated!
