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.

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.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Founded on the core principle of community, Colburn believes that the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion are vital to our collective success as an institution and a community of performing artists. We welcome students from all over the country and around the world and strive to maintain and develop a diverse, inclusive, and supportive educational environment where everyone can thrive.
