Night lighting at UCLA is a leading priority for Facilities Management. In 1982, we started a program to identify and correct safety hazards caused by inadequate lighting. Since then, Facilities Management has spent over $1,000,000 on night lighting improvements.
Sharing Facilities Management's commitment to the improvement of campus night lighting:
- Representatives from the UCLA Police Department, Campus Architects and Engineers and Student Government worked with us and a professional lighting consultant to meet UCLA's night lighting challenge.
- The Chancellor's Office has actively supported efforts to correct night lighting deficiencies and funded several exterior lighting projects over the last several years.
- Parking Services has invested in an ongoing program to upgrade the lighting in parking structures and on surface lots.
- Capital Programs has managed lighting retrofits to upgrade campus street lights.
- The Housing Administration has provided additional lighting in areas adjacent to the Residence Halls.
Keeping UCLA well lit requires constant vigilance on the part of the Facilities Management staff. Maintenance personnel replace exterior bulbs on a daily basis and groundskeepers trim shrubs back from walkways to keep them from interfering with light sources. You can help, too! If you spot burned out lights, call the Trouble Call Center anytime at (310) 825-9236. These calls receive our highest priority.
For your own safety, please select well-lit pathways, even if they take a few extra minutes. Or call the Campus Escort Program at (310) 794-9255 for assistance.
