Through the generosity of David Geffen and The David Geffen Foundation, Geffen Academy at UCLA is a purposefully designed, modern, urban facility located at the south end of UCLA’s campus. Geffen Academy's campus is equipped with a wide array of classroom and programmatic spaces. From our cutting-edge science laboratories, student conference rooms, and indoor-outdoor contemporary dining commons outfitted with healthy snacks, to our animation and recording studios, Geffen Academy’s various spaces reflect our values and school-wide learning goals. Our architectural firm, KoningEizenberg, brought Geffen Academy's values and program to life with the design for the creation of our building and grounds.
