Study design and become a design leader in the heart of downtown San Francisco

The Cooper U classroom is a space for you to imagine, explore, and transform the way you work.

View to the west from Cooper

The Cooper U classroom is located in the center of an historical building that has also been home to the Supreme Court of California and the Red Cross. The room offers high ceilings, tons of natural light, and plenty of space for team breakout sessions.

Cooper U students working at roundtable

While inside the Cooper studio, you’ll have the chance to mingle among the designers. Everyone works in a communal office space, even Alan Cooper. The space was designed to inspire collaboration and creativity with features like chalk and whiteboard walls and an Innovation Lab where Cooper designers tinker and toy with different digital tools.

Organizational Training

If you have a large group or you want a combination of courses and workshops suited your team’s unique needs, we can bring Cooper U to you.
