Based in the heart of Los Angeles, UCLA is home to almost 50,000 students who come from a plethora of backgrounds. Us students are densely packed into a 419 acre campus, making this public research University seem more like a small city rather than a college campus. UCLA is known for its well-rounded balance of academics, student organizations, sports, and, of course, amazing food. UCLA has not only been rated the #1 public university in the U.S. for the past 2 years, but also topped Niche’s 2017 and 2018 “Best College Food in America” rankings. This first place spot did not come without reason, as UCLA houses a wide variety of dining options that incorporate multiple cuisines, ingredients, and, of course, dietary needs. In particular, UCLA is extremely vegan-friendly, with vegan options at every single dining location on campus. Moreover, Los Angeles is home to a multitude of vegan restaurants, and even the majority of non-vegan restaurants offer plenty of vegan options or dishes that can be easily veganized. The purpose of this guide is to bring together fellow vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, omnivores, and the like to celebrate the wide variety of plant-based options there are on and around UCLA campus. So, without further adieu, it is my pleasure to present to you: The Ultimate Plant-Based Guide to UCLA.
