UCLA says it can’t guarantee housing in coming academic year. 

UCLA Chancellor Gene Block says the university has not made a decision on what the fall quarter will look like, but “at a minimum, since we know it might not be possible for some students to safely travel to campus, we plan to offer the option of remote learning at least for fall quarter, even if some classes are held in person.” He also said the university “at this point” could not guarantee housing to all students in the fall.  “In normal times, UCLA is able to offer housing to a majority of incoming and returning students,” he wrote in a detailed online message.  “At this point, it is unclear how the pandemic will impact our operations in student housing and residential life during the 2020–21 academic year and therefore we are unfortunately unable to provide a housing guarantee.
