The Associated Students UCLA is the student-controlled, non-profit organization that has provided retail and student union services to the University of California Los Angeles since its establishment in 1919.
ASUCLA, the Associated Students UCLA, was created when UCLA first opened its doors back in 1919. Even in the very early years, ASUCLA meant student government, student publications, and student services such as a bookstore and cafeteria. Today, ASUCLA has evolved into a four-part organization.

These four entities of ASUCLA collectively make up the largest student association in the country.

  • Student Media at UCLA includes the Daily Bruin,, the Bruin Life Yearbook, and seven newsmagazines: Fem, La Gente, Nommo, Ha’Am, Pacific Ties, Al-Talib, OutWrite.

  • Services & Enterprises are designed to meet the everyday needs of students and the campus community. Major divisions are the Student Union, Event Services, UCLA Restaurants, UCLA Store, UCLA Photography, and Trademarks & Licensing.
