Downtown Los Angeles 

In keeping with our mission to embrace diverse and underserved populations, our Los Angeles Campus is located in the heart of the most diverse city in the most diverse state in our nation. Perhaps best known for Hollywood celebrities, world-class shopping, and incredible nightlife, Los Angeles also boasts unmatched ethnic, cultural, political and social diversity—providing an unsurpassed range of opportunities for personal enrichment and professional training.

This urban campus is located in the city's downtown business district, in the historic "617 building," with its incredible barrel ceilings and gleaming brass elevators—that open into our ultra-contemporary campus with exposed duct work, concrete floors, dramatic lighting, and state-of-the-art technology. The campus is just steps from the metro train station and public parking, and a short drive from the 110, 101, 5, and 10 freeways.
