LMU Announces New Playa Vista Campus

Loyola Marymount University has leased more than 50,000 square feet of space for its new LMU Playa Vista Campus, expanding the university’s Silicon Beach presence, President Timothy Law Snyder, PhD, announced February 10. Through a long-term lease agreement with Tishman Speyer at The Brickyard Playa Vista, LMU will design learning and creative spaces in preparation for a fall 2018 opening.

LMU Playa Vista Campus will house graduate programs for LMU School of Film and Television, ranked No. 6 in USA Today’s national film school rankings. LMU will also offer spaces for academic and creative activities and events, placing students and faculty members in the heart of L.A.’s tech innovation and creativity hub.

“LMU Playa Vista Campus is a game-changer,” Snyder said. “As the University of Silicon Beach, our industry partnerships, immersive and interdisciplinary learning opportunities, career pathways, and ideal location are unmatched. LMU is already a crucible of creativity, where world-changing ideas are imagined and formed. Silicon Beach is one of the world’s fastest-growing startup ecosystems, an ideal counterpart for LMU as the definitive center for global imagination and its impacts.”

LMU School of Film and Television will continue to partner and expand upon its programs and initiatives in Silicon Beach, preparing LMU students for careers in the creative economy. The school will also develop dynamic creator spaces for students and the greater community. LMU has longstanding programs and relationships that interconnect the university to Playa Vista, including LMU M-School Institute of Marketing, LMU Center for Urban Resilience, LMU Fred Kiesner Center for Entrepreneurship, and LMU School of Education’s Family of Schools. LMU will explore other academic areas and initiatives that may benefit by proximity to the Playa Vista culture and industry.

Designed by local architect Michael Maltzan with Gensler, The Brickyard is named for the distinctive white-glazed brick exteriors of its buildings. The 425,300-square-foot campus will include offices, retail space, parking, and other amenities.

LMU Playa Vista Campus is located near the 405 freeway, Jefferson Boulevard and Centinela Avenue at 12105 West Waterfront Drive in Playa Vista. With the university’s iconic bell tower and bluff letters nearby, the new campus marks the university’s third location in Los Angeles, including its main Westchester campus in Silicon Beach and its Loyola Law School campus in downtown L.A.
