ArtCenter’s South Campus complex has grown to encompass three sustainably renovated facilities designed to integrate the College into the surrounding community and greater Los Angeles.

ArtCenter’s South Campus was established in 2004 to accommodate the College’s overall growth. Located in the heart of downtown Pasadena’s Innovation Corridor, South Campus’ three architecturally significant structures:

950 S. Raymond Avenue, an award-winning, LEED-certified renovated supersonic wind tunnel, houses the College’s Public Programs, Graduate Art, and Graduate Media Design Practices programs.

870 S. Raymond Avenue, a former post office sorting facility, was converted in 2014 to provide dedicated space to our Fine Art and Illustration students, with added classrooms, individual studio spaces, shared exhibition spaces and a sculpture yard.

1111 S. Arroyo Parkway, South Campus’ newest structure, opened its doors to ArtCenter students in 2015. Renovations continue toward completing the transformation of the former office building into a hub of modern classrooms and administrative offices located at the terminus of the historic Arroyo Seco Parkway, the symbolic gateway to Pasadena, connecting Pasadena to downtown L.A. and the greater San Gabriel Valley.

Art Center also maintains a private shuttle to ensure students can travel easily between our two campuses.
