Facilities on Campus

Our campus features state-of-the-art facilities that are freely accessible to all students, regardless of their program.

To ensure safe and responsible access, inductions and safety training for various labs are conducted in the first weeks of each semester. Students only need to attend a session once per lab they plan to use throughout their studies at PCA. CAP students are also on hand during open studio hours to provide technical assistance.

Along with our well-equipped labs, students can request access to the full Adobe Creative Suite to be loaded onto their personal laptops. Please see below for a comprehensive overview of our facilities, including exciting new additions as part of our new campus in the 17th arrondissement.
