Cornish College of the Arts' campus is located in the three vibrant Seattle neighborhoods: South Lake Union/Denny Regrade, Capitol Hill, and Seattle Center/Queen Anne. The newest addition to campus is Cornish Commons, which opened in September 2015, and houses students from Cornish and nearby City University of Seattle. The Cornish campus locations are surrounded by dozens of theaters, museums, music venues, and galleries; iconic Seattle landmarks like the Space Needle; the national headquarters for some of the country's fast-expanding tech corporations; and, of course, many coffeehouses.
