Introducing Bruin Health Pharmacy

Our new Bruin Health Pharmacy is located on the A-Level of Ackerman Union, A-250, and is available to all registered students. We offer a full range of prescription medications in addition to over 70 over-the-counter medications.

Unlike other healthcare facilities, The Ashe Center serves only the UC community. All of our services are geared towards your needs as a UCLA student. As such, Bruin Health Pharmacy and our clinical staff are a unique team that is here to support you in all of your healthcare needs.

Our pharmacy staff offers counseling and advice to students and works directly with clinicians to ensure you are getting the medication and care you need. We have a thorough understanding of health insurance policies and can help you obtain coverage and approval for your medications.

  2. The prescription number of the medication to be transferred
