Life at Colburn

The Colburn School is home to students attending the Colburn Music Academy, Colburn Conservatory of Music, and Colburn Dance Academy. Together we form a tight-knit community located in the heart of the Los Angeles thriving downtown arts and music corridor.

On-and-Off Campus Living

We want to make life on campus as comfortable and inviting as possible. Each room—doubles, triples, or quads—is furnished with everything residents will need: extra-long twin beds; desks/chairs; nightstands with lamps; and wardrobes. There are also TVs, sofas, and kitchenettes. Students can unwind and enjoy free time in the shared game room. Plus, students who live in Colburn Residence Halls have access to staff at all times to answer questions or offer assistance. There are several off-campus housing options, too, including an apartment complex right next door to the Colburn School where many students reside.

Student Socializing

We encourage students to make the most of their Music Academy experience, including getting to know each other and socializing with their peers. We welcome students to relax at the Colburn Café or step outside for some of that welcoming Southern California sunshine during breaks.

Diversity and Inclusion

The Colburn School welcomes students from right here in Southern California, across the country, and around the world. Our students are diverse, and we have cultivated an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive.
