Dating back to 1931, this was the original home of the Student Union. It was the sixth structure built at UCLA, and it is the only building on campus designed in the Collegiate Gothic style. Today, Kerckhoff Hall houses undergraduate and graduate student governments, as well as UCLA’s independent Student Media and the oldest coffeehouse on campus. Come see the original stained glass windows, which feature crests of many universities, including Vassar, Bryn Mawr and Harvard.

One of UCLA’s most celebrated alumni, Jackie Robinson was the first player to break the color barrier in Major League Baseball. The 42-inch bronze “42” displays a plaque with one of Robinson’s most oft-quoted sayings: “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.”

Inverted Fountain

Listen carefully and you’ll hear the sound of a flowing mountain stream on the south end of campus thanks to the currents of this unique, inward-swirling fountain, which was inspired by Yellowstone’s bubbling mud pots and hot springs. Over the years, the fountain has become the subject of UCLA legends, including one that asks new Bruins to touch the water during orientation, then warns them that doing so again before graduation will add an extra quarter to their academic year. True or not, you may spot graduating seniors wading into the fountain to celebrate their last final exam.
