San Diego Campus

The Intersection of Imagination and Technology

Located in the bustling East Village and walking distance from the Gaslamp Quarter that's home to hundreds of restaurants and shops, FIDM San Diego boasts a unique downtown coastal location overlooking Petco Park, which has a 2.7 acre dog friendly neighborhood park.

The award-winning campus, designed by architect Clive Wilkinson, features a vibrant color palette, modern furnishings, and imaginative common rooms filled with natural light.


We recommend a personal tour for prospective undergraduate students, transfer students, and their families.

A personal tour offers Admissions guidance about:

  • FIDM Majors
  • Entrance Requirements
  • College Transfer
  • Financial Aid
