Like a small city, UCLA has its own police department and fire marshal, an equivalent to the phone company, health center, corner restaurants, and shops. Hundreds of services for the campus community facilitate academic and personal endeavors.
Many sources of academic counseling are available. Faculty advisers and counselors in the College and each school help students with major selection, program planning, academic difficulties, degree requirements, and petitions.
