The goal of AUP Student Life is to prepare students for the independence and responsibility that comes with living in a city center. AUP’s numerous co-curricular outings and extracurricular clubs are the building blocks of the Student Life experience.
AUP Students enjoy the safety of living in a small, secure campus located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles and the freedom to explore the city in all its splendor.
Our campus is within walking distance to multiple museums, fashion and art districts, iconic music and sports venues (Walt Disney Music Hall, Staples Center, LA Live), and multiple ethnic enclaves (Chinatown, Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Little Ethiopia, etc). Students are encouraged to participate in various outings that allow them to explore their interests and develop a respect for others.
