Located on 9th and Spring Street, we’re in the heart of the Fashion District and surrounded by many amazing restaurants and sights. It’s the perfect location for students to walk around and get a coffee before class or grab a quick lunch or dinner. We’re 10 minutes away from Union Station which is the central location for those students taking public transportation. Being in the center of the Fashion District is constantly inspiring our staff and students every day.
