Pepperdine at STAPLES Center

Pepperdine Classroom at STAPLES Center

Opened in October 2018, the Pepperdine classroom at STAPLES Center is a first-of-its-kind innovative learning and engagement space located within one of the most iconic sports and entertainment venues in North America. Located on Delta Suite Level B, this 1,300 square-foot classroom is host to numerous academic, student, and alumni functions.

This technology-rich learning environment holds classes of 30 to 40 students and can quickly transition to a full event venue that hosts 50 to 100 guests inside and outside of the space. The classroom features carefully designed flexible space configurations, collaborative technology for wireless projection and group work, a closed-circuit feed of the arena, and live streaming capabilities that connect guest speakers in the STAPLES Center classroom with any of Pepperdine's classrooms around the globe. The classroom also showcases state-of-the-art digital signage powered by our technology partner, Toshiba, which can be used both in an academic environment and to promote our entertainment, media, and sports programs with vibrant, engaging displays.

The classroom was designed by the Pepperdine University Department of Design and Construction and Integrated Marketing Communications in partnership with global design, architecture, engineering, and planning firm HOK, constructed by Environmental Contracting Corporation, and features leading-edge technology by Toshiba.
