We’ve opened the door to ideas, inspiration and breakthroughs

UCLA celebrated the official grand opening on October 7, 2016 of the UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center. Situated in the heart of the campus, this new venue is a long-held aspiration that has come to fruition, bringing people together to share knowledge and address some of society’s most vexing problems.

The new Luskin Conference Center offers 24 dynamic state-of-the-art meeting spaces in 25,000 square feet of carefully crafted layouts, designed to host a variety of academic, research, and other educational conferences and events. All of the meeting venues feature very cutting edge, built-in audio-visual technology with complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property. 254 beautifully appointed guest rooms, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and lounge serving California-fresh cuisine, a fitness center, business kiosks, and valet parking round out the offerings for a superb meeting experience.

“The UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center is a place built expressly for leading experts in their respective fields to gather and create the future,” UCLA Chancellor Gene Block said. “The conference center will be an incubator for fresh thinking, deliberation and discovery that will lead to scientific and social progress. It will also serve as a gateway for first-time visitors to experience our campus and its vibrant community.”

The Luskin Center’s role in fostering engagement among students, faculty members, government leaders, members of the Los Angeles community and visitors from around the world in the spirit of UCLA’s mission will make the facility a critical piece of UCLA’s future, Block explained.
