We are in the final stages of planning for a construction project on our San Francisco campus. 

This summer a new two-story structure will be constructed within the interior of our 1111 Eighth Street building. This will add two classrooms, three offices, and 2,200 square feet of instructional space on the second floor of the building.

The project scope also includes construction of an adjacent presentation space that will provide a controlled lighting and acoustically engineered environment to support a wide variety of college programming. 

Due to the scope of planned construction, a section of the 1111 Eighth Street building will be closed this summer. To those familiar with the site, only the Beta building will be closed. The closure will include the Nave, N-Studio classrooms, Production Stage, SANF 100 and 200 series studios, and the Back Lot.

These areas will be closed beginning 11:59 p.m. on May 15 and will reopen at 8 a.m. on August 22. (Authorized exhibition teams will have access until 5 p.m. on May 16.)

1111 Eighth Street construction closure:
Closed - May 15, 11:59 p.m.
Open - August 22, 8 a.m.

The main campus entrance on 1111 Eighth Street will be closed, except for access to ARCH and A2 Café. The café will close for about three weeks starting May 15The 450 Irwin building (Alpha) will remain open, including our instructional shops, computer labs, Simpson Library, Timken Lecture Hall, studios, and classrooms spaces.

Please use the 450 Irwin (delivery) entrance to access these spaces.

All other San Francisco campus buildings will operate as usual. All academic programming and scheduled summer courses will be unaffected and will run as planned.
