Due to the pandemic, ArtCenter’s campus is no longer open 24/7. Only authorized students, faculty and staff will be permitted on campus to facilitate teaching, learning and making; or to manage critical business services and infrastructure. Campus operations can continue only if everyone who comes to campus adheres to our health and safety protocols at all times.
Hours of Operations
Monday–Friday: 7 a.m.–8 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m.–7 p.m.
Sunday: 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
Operating hours for makerspaces (labs, shops, etc.) will be determined for each area to meet demand and need. Those hours will be posted prior to the start of term and incorporated into this document in subsequent updates.
Please note that these operating hours are for ArtCenter's Hillside and South campuses in Pasadena.
Access to campus will require several steps for every person coming on campus and will only vary slightly based on the campus or building.
In general, we must all take responsibility for our own actions as well as be good citizens by looking out for others. If you see or notice any individual not following these protocols or showing symptoms of illness do not approach the individual. Instead, promptly report the situation to Campus Security immediately for appropriate handling.
Overall campus occupancy will be based on each building’s individual occupancy. Each classroom has been evaluated for its capacity to allow persons to physcially distance from each other with a minimum of six feet distance between each other. Classes will be spread throughout the two campuses and buildings to minimize the number of persons in the facilities at any one time. Only rooms that meet the maximum enrollment for each class will be used. Rooms not being scheduled will be used for other purposes or will not be accessible to faculty or students.
South Campus - 1111 building
South Campus - 950 building
South Campus - 870 building
South Campus - 888 shops
ArtCenter shuttles will not be in operation at this time. As discussed in this guide, minimizing exposure to others is key to managing the pandemic. Alternatives are being investigated and will be implemented, if feasible, to maintain the safety of those coming to campus. Re-starting shuttle service will be considered once the risk of exposure is minimized.
