These are for sale. Can any ucla insiders give any tips about this place or area? What about buying vs renting--This seems to be one of the very few places you can buy a condo north of Wilshire, because most of Westwood seems to be tied up with rental properties.

In general, living in Westwood is EXPENSIVE. Club Cal condos range from $300000 to $600000

If affordable, then go for it. Otherwise, u gotta rent here. And rent sucks. $800-$1200/mo for a studio or 1 bedroom. I live in a 3 bedroom and total rent+park is more than $3000!!!!! It's hard to get good deals close to campus...if you don't mind 10 min drives (20-30 w/traffic), living in Palms or something like that mite be a better option.

UCLA provides housing for students. Still expensive though. Undergrad housing is around 900-1100 mo with food. Grad housing, I'm not exactly sure. You could check at

Thanks for that helpful response.
Anyone familiar with housing in the area know if Club Cal still has good value. I hear they have loft condos as well. That may be of interest... I wonder what the re-sale opportunities are for a loft condo, considering it is less commonly sought after as compared to studios or one bedrooms. I also wonder if now would be a good time to purchase, considering the escalation in prices over the last couple years. But with interest rates this high, property prices tend to fall a bit.

Hey I actually lived at this place for a couple years during undergrad. This was 2-3 yrs ago, before they converted it all to condos. The location is really good and our apt was pretty nice but at a high price - $2900/month for 3BR 2 1/2 bath. I don't know too much about buying so I dont think I can hlep you with any advice there. All I can say is that it generally is a good investment to buy (if you can afford it) around a university - just as the Daily Bruin article said. PM me if you have any more questions....
