Bay Area

The San Francisco Bay Area is defined by entrepreneurship, sustainability, and social activism as well as design and technology. Innovation and creativity permeate all aspects of daily life.

Location Matters

California College of the Arts (CCA) is located in the hub of the Bay Area’s “innovation corridor,” where Silicon Valley drives the need for design and technology solutions to real-world problems. And our dynamic contemporary art scene inspires us to think differently about the world.

The San Francisco campus is located in the heart of the Design District, and fewer than two miles from “museum row,” featuring world-renowned museums and galleries.

You will thrive in our urban landscape, as you push boundaries and think critically about what’s around you. In this way the Bay Area itself becomes an extension of your classroom.
