Campus Life Support for Student Programming (SSP) Fund
Campus Life Funding
Campus Life Funding, administered by the Office of the Assistant Vice Chancellor, provides supplemental funding for student activities and programs that benefit the campus community. These funds are open to all registered campus organizations and official student governments. Funding is managed through the RCO funding system at https://sa.ucla.edu/funding/fund/client. Currently there are 2 funding applications:
REF (Recreation Venues Event Fund) specifically funds labor and custodial expenses associated with the use of Recreation spaces by student activities/organizations for practices, performances, programs, meetings and events. There is no rental fee for student organizations to use Recreation spaces. Please review the REF Funding Guidelines available at www.campuslife.ucla.edu/funding.
Campus Life Support for Student Programming (SSP) funds aim to provide supplemental support for student activities and programs that benefit the campus community. Through SSP, student groups have access to additional resources for program/event needs that do not meet traditional funding resources guidelines, have timing issues, or are supplemental to funds awarded by student committees. To best assess the outstanding need and allocate funding accordingly, Campus Life requires information on your total event cost, confirmed funding and pending funding. SSP allocates funding for food, transportation, facilities, supplies, advertising and transportation. Limited honoraria funding is available. All funding allocations will be made on a viewpoint-neutral basis. Please review the Campus Life SSP Funding Guidelines available at www.campuslife.ucla.edu/funding.
Due to budget reductions, Campus Life SSP funding is very limited for 2019-20. In general, Campus Life does not fund expenses related to purchase/repair of equipment, retreats, conference travel, performance fees, decorations, flowers, or gifts to participants.
