About

Welcome to The Art Institute of California—San Francisco

The City by the Bay conjures up a variety of different images – from the cable cars and the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz, Union Square, Haight-Ashbury, and the charming Victorian houses peeking through the fog. San Francisco residents and visitors relish the city’s diverse neighborhoods, culture, and restaurants.

The Art Institute of California — San Francisco campus is located in the city’s Civic Center neighborhood. The San Francisco campus sits at the edge of San Francisco’s SOMA district, within blocks of City Hall, the San Francisco Library, the new Asian Art Museum, and minutes from the Design Center and bustling activity of Union Square.

The Art Institute of California — San Francisco campus is easily accessible via public transportation – both MUNI and BART have a Civic Center stop, and many buses and above-ground trains run up and down Market Street for easy accessibility to the campus from anywhere in the city or outlying suburbs.
