Osher (OLLI)

Join a vibrant community of like-minded adult learners.

Make friends, as you learn for the sheer love of learning.


The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI at UCLA) provides a unique opportunity for individuals age 50 or over to participate in an extensive program of classes, lectures, discussion groups, special events, and social gatherings. You can find us in your neighborhood with locations in Westwood Village and Woodland Hills.

All OLLI at UCLA Members enjoy the following:

  • Invitations to unique programs and activities within the OLLI community
  • Connection with OLLIs across the nation
  • Access to award-winning instructors and compelling courses
  • Multiple, convenient learning locations

OLLI at UCLA is a dynamic community, a polity of friends, a citizenry of like-minded individuals who enjoy their classes and the people they meet there. Our instructors come from distinguished UCLA faculty, insiders from the arts and entertainment industries, and other experts in a variety of professional fields. We also present non-academic events—such as museum tours, film screenings, speaker series, and more—exclusively for our OLLI at UCLA members.

    Courses are typically held weekdays from 10am-12pm, 1-3pm, and 6:30-8:30pm. Some courses are also offered on weekends.
