Dorm Routine

Innovative Urban Education in Downtown Los Angeles

About Our Dorms

  • AUP has dorms separated by gender, with boys on the mezzanine floor and girls located on the third floor.
  • Each dorm floor is equipped with a small common kitchen are, sitting room, study area, and relaxation area. Cleaning services and laundry services are provided for all of our boarding students.
  • Once class is over, students are welcome to enjoy time spent in the dorms relaxing with their fellow peers or spending time overlooking the city of Los Angeles from our balcony patio.
  • Los Angeles is our backyard for students and visiting parents to enjoy!

Boarding on campus is an integral part of the AUP experience. AUP Residential Life is a significant component of Student Life that empowers students to grow academically, socially, culturally, and emotionally. The experience of living away from home amongst a global group of peers allows students to gain a deeper understanding of their true selves, grow in confidence, become independent, and appreciate the value of diversity. AUP boarding students graduate well-equipped for a successful transition into university life.


Our meals are catered locally every day at AUP, and we strive to meet special dietary needs of students to the extent that it is possible. If you would like to download an example of our menus, they are below. If you have specific concerns, please email
