About Hollywood

The Art Institute of California—Hollywood is proud to call North Hollywood's NoHo Arts District home. The NoHo Arts District is a pedestrian-friendly urban village with direct access to the Los Angeles subway system.

Local amenities include contemporary theaters, art galleries, parks, cafes, and shops, making this community a model for responsible development.

Students have easy access to Los Angeles' sports and culture—and the entire region provides many opportunities for internship experiences that can provide real-world learning and networking. Downtown Hollywood is a center of fashion and film. Entertainment giants are headquartered in the San Fernando Valley. And major design firms are located on the Westside.

The extended Hollywood/Los Angeles/San Fernando Valley area gives students many options for fine dining, culture, part time employment, and recreation.
