"Convenient location for UCLA students"
I lived in an apartment on Rochester Ave while a grad student at UCLA. This area is far enough from campus that you feel somewhat separated from all the students and partying, but close enough to be a convenient short commute to campus. A bus stop was within short walking distance. Rochester Ave has easy access to several main thoroughfares such as Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica Blvd, Sepulveda Blvd, and the 405. There is not a lot in the way of shopping, eating out, or entertainment in this immediate area, but not too far away are a few delis and a good little Thai place just around the corner on Westwood. Garage parking in your apartment building is a must, as street parking is hard to come by.
