City Center

Located two miles north of the University Park campus in one of Los Angeles’ largest high rises (AT&T Center) just blocks from L.A. Live and the Staples Center, City Center offers expansive city views of downtown Los Angeles, a 500-seat auditorium, retail shops and a food court. While City Center offers classes and research resources, it merely serves as a venue for additional classroom and office space. It is not an academic center and cannot be selected as a location for pursuing a degree.
