The Colburn School
The Colburn School residences are conveniently located on the Colburn School Campus in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. The residences consist of fully furnished two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and four bedroom suites (similar to a small apartment). Each suite contains a shared bathroom and a living area with a kitchenette stocked with a microwave, coffee maker, mini-refrigerator, and sink. Each bedroom contains one single extra-long twin bed, a wardrobe, desk, and bedside table. Four-bedroom suites have two bathrooms. Approximately 20-25 people reside on each floor of the seven floors of the residential building. The residence hall opened in August of 2007, so the building is only 8 years old. Those who choose to stay at Colburn enjoy great views of downtown in an extremely nice dorm setting.
