Hillside Campus

Located on 165 wooded acres in Pasadena, Hillside Campus has been home to ArtCenter since 1976.

The main building is a dramatic modernist steel-and-glass bridge structure spanning an arroyo in the San Rafael Hills, just above the Rose Bowl. Designed by Craig Ellwood Associates, it has been designated a local historic landmark by the City of Pasadena. Hillside Campus houses many of the College’s undergraduate programs, as well as its Graduate Industrial Design and Graduate Film programs and administrative offices.

Our facilities and resources provide students with a limitless array of learning opportunities. Studios, workspaces, editing bays, photo and computer labs provide our students with a host of creative tools, including 3D rapid modeling, CNC machines, modeling facilities and rapid prototyping technologies.

The facilities are just amazing. I’m so bummed that I can’t use that stuff now. It’s like the dream workshop.
