Life at Colburn

We know there’s more to students’ lives than just attending classes, rehearsals, and performing. At Colburn, we want every day you spend with us to be enriching, and we want you to feel part of a supportive community.

On-Campus Living

Dance Academy students who choose to live in the Colburn residence hall will find the surroundings comfortable and inviting. Each student apartment contains two, three, or four bedrooms, and all are furnished with everything residents will need: extra-long twin beds; desks and chairs; nightstands with lamps; and wardrobes. Rooms have a shared common area with TVs, sofas, and kitchenettes, and students can work out in the on-campus gym.

Staff are available around the clock to offer assistance.

Living Off Campus

There are several off-campus housing options, including an apartment complex right next door to Colburn, where many students reside.

Student Socializing

We encourage students to make the most of their experience at Colburn, including getting to know each other and socializing with their peers. Grab something to eat with friends at the Colburn Café. Step outside for some of that welcoming Southern California sunshine during breaks. Or venture off campus to explore Los Angeles and its beaches, parks, and museums.

Diversity and Inclusion

Colburn welcomes students from all over the country and around the world. Our students are diverse, and we have cultivated an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive.

Student Development Mixers

The Colburn Career Development Center hosts two networking events each semester with students, faculty, staff, industry professionals, and community partners. Each event begins with a short panel discussion on a topic chosen to specifically stimulate conversation among attendees.
