Serving upper-division and graduate students, the Waterfront Campus in the historic district of San Pedro provides students with instruction, internships and a cultural connection that is unique from the University’s other campuses. The Waterfront Campus includes several locations including the first floor of the Park Place building at 222 West Sixth Street and the Arcade Gallery in the Arcade Building, several blocks further up the street. Fondly referred to as the “creativity cooridor,” students interact with artists, view and display art in galleries and enjoy music at the district’s First Thursday events. Soon to be open is the Klaus Center for Arts and Media which is located between the Arcade Gallery and the 222 West Sixth location where atate-of-the-art media technology will be available for students.
In addition, the Waterfront Campus is located to the largest port in the world – the Port of Los Angeles. Having this international destination within a block of the campus provides students opportunities for learning and internships.
