About California College of the Arts

California College of the Arts is not your standard conference and event venue. Designed with artists, architects, and makers in mind, the San Francisco Campus (previously a Greyhound bus maintenance facility) is 146,000 square feet of creative space ideal for special events and meetings. CCA's San Francisco campus has flexible meeting spaces, generous common areas (great for collaboration), a Presentation space that can accommodate 200, a theatre that can accommodate 140, as well as ample breakout rooms. CCA seeks to partner with planners who are creative, flexible and excited to offer their attendees something different than the standard hotel or formal university experience. 

CCA's San Francisco campus is located at the border of Mission Bay, Potrero Hill and Dogpatch neighborhoods, next to the city's design district in what is now referred to as the "innovation corridor." We are located within blocks of University of California at San Francisco's Mission Bay research campus, and 1 mile from the Chase Center (Warriors Stadium).

California College of the Arts educates students to shape culture and society through the practice and critical study of art, architecture, design, and writing. Benefitting from its San Francisco Bay Area location, the college prepares students for lifelong creative work by cultivating innovation, community engagement, and social and environmental responsibility.

Private, nonprofit
Coeducational, residential
Offering degree-seeking students 22 undergraduate and 13 graduate majors in the areas of fine arts, architecture, design, and writing.

Values Statement
