Loyola Marymount to open satellite campus for film and television school

Feb. 14, 2017
The Playa Vista campus in Los Angeles will be a couple of miles from the university's main location.

Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles has leased more than 50,000 square feet of space for a new campus in the city's Playa Vista neighborhood.

Through a long-term lease agreement with Tishman Speyer at The Brickyard Playa Vista, the university will design learning and creative spaces in preparation for a fall 2018 opening.

The Playa Vista Campus will house graduate programs for LMU School of Film and Television. LMU also will offer spaces for academic and creative activities and events, placing students and faculty members in the heart of the city's tech innovation and creativity hub that has been dubbed Silicon Beach.

“LMU Playa Vista Campus is a game-changer,” says Loyola Marymount President Timothy Law Snyder. “As the University of Silicon Beach, our industry partnerships, immersive and interdisciplinary learning opportunities, career pathways, and ideal location are unmatched."

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

LMU Playa Vista Campus is only a couple of miles from the main Loyola Marymount campus. The new campus will be the university’s third location in Los Angeles. The Loyola Law School campus is in downtown Los Angeles.
