UCLA picked as Olympic Village in L.A. bid for 2024 Summer Games

If Los Angeles wins its bid for the 2024 Olympics, UCLA will house the athletes.

Mayor Eric Garcetti announced on Monday that the campus is slated serve as the Olympic Village, the same role it served when the city last hosted the Summer Games in 1984. Preexisting facilities at USC, CSULA and UCSB were also used, which contributed to the event producing a $232.5 million surplus.

Los Angeles is competing with Rome, Paris and Budapest to host the 2024 games, with the International Olympic Committee set to make a decision next year.
