UCLA, While You Were Away: Kerckhoff Hall

Kerckhoff Hall serves as the meeting point between North and South campus, so it’s no wonder it’s one of the most popular social hotspots at UCLA. With its iconic exterior and adjacent patio, there’s always an endless stream of students, faculty and staff. While the university campus is closed to the public due to COVID-19, we wanted to take you on a photo tour of this special area and a walk down memory lane. Let’s get started!

You just stepped out of Powell Library, and are in definite need of some great coffee. Next stop: Kerckhoff Hall.

You’re inside the popular Kerckhoff Coffee House, and the sweet aroma immediately wakes you up.

You glance at the Kerckhoff Coffee House’s amazing offerings: the apple fritter (or “bearclaw”), Everything bagel, or some fresh fruit. Decision made….

With your coffee in hand, you step outside onto the patio and look around at the crowded tables for any of your friends or maybe even some new ones.

It’s lunchtime, so you decide to grab some food from nearby Ackerman Union and enjoy it on a sunny day out on the patio.

As you stroll past the patio and courtyard, you notice that Kerckhoff Hall is exceptionally ornate. In fact, it’s beautiful architecture has served as the backdrop for many famous Hollywood films.

If you have to send off a quick email or roll out the books for a last minute study session, there’s definitely room for that at Kerckhoff’s study lounge.

Lunch and a quick look at the books is done, and you remember you have that elective course just across the way at Moore Hall.

You enter Moore 100, and continue another great day as a student at UCLA.
