The Graduate Housing Timeline may be useful in providing an overview of the application and offer process.
Additional Details regarding DGSOM’s Priority Allocation
DGSOM’s departmental priority allocation from UCLA Housing is only used for incoming medical students. Students who complete their SIR/SLR and their housing application by the priority deadline in mid-May will be included in the priority allocation. This allocation will give priority for an annual housing offer, which for Single Graduate Housing can be extended for up to 2 additional years (3 years total). Please visit UCLA Housing’s web site and Housing offers/contracts for the for most complete and up-to-date information.
Please note that, while the School of Medicine makes every effort to secure housing for its incoming students, there is no guarantee for housing allotment. Increasing your options (location, room type, etc.) will increase your chances of getting a spot in UCLA Graduate Student Housing.
Unfortunately, current continuing medical students are not eligible for our departmental priority allocation.
PLEASE NOTE: Jury Duty is a legal obligation, and our general guidelines do not supersede the processes of any jurisdiction. Court processes may vary, so please contact the number on your summons should you have any questions. While the DGSOM can compose a letter on your behalf, it is your responsibility to mail the form. Only a letter or notification from the court serves as an exemption.
First Time Receiving a Jury Summons Call - Call the Jury Service hotline telephone number listed on the summons to request a postponement of your service date. Select a date as far ahead as possible as all jurors are entitled to one postponement. On occasion, doing so will remove you from the jury pool altogether.
Second Jury Summons - If you receive a second summons, or were informed that you will not receive a second summons, request a Jury Duty Exemption Letter one month prior to your service date. Complete and submit a Document Request Form with the pertinent information from your summons. The completed form may be returned via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, via fax (310) 794-9574 or by placing it in the Registrar mailbox (Geffen Hall, Suite 200). Processing time is 3-5 business days depending on time of year and volume of requests.
You will receive an email, from the School of Medicine Registrar, when the letter is available to pick up from the SAO.
After the Jury Summons and Exemption Letter has been mailed, call the original Jury Service hotline telephone number, listed on the summons, and ask to speak with a court specialist to explain your situation and request to have your summons placed on "hold' while the Exemption Letter is processed by the court system.
You MUST speak with a court specialist. Your service will be placed on "hold" for 30 days. This should be adequate time for the court system to process the Exemption Letter. The process of reaching a court specialist over the phone is tedious and can take up to a 30 minute telephone hold time. If your jury duty service in not placed on "hold" while the letter is being process it could result in a re-summoning to jury duty, and you could be considered as a "failed to appear in court" if your assigned or selected jury duty service date has passed.
