About Gemological Institute of America (GIA)

Established in 1931, GIA is the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls. A public benefit, nonprofit institute, GIA is the leading source of knowledge, standards, and education in gems and jewelry.

Campus information

The Robert Mouawad Campus at GIA World Headquarters is the premier gem studies school — fully integrating state-of-the-art classrooms, the famous GIA laboratory, and an internationally recognized museum into the beautiful Carlsbad, California location.

Nestled beside the Pacific Ocean, a half-hour from San Diego, the community is a beautiful place to learn as well as relax after class. From surfing and sailing to hiking and golfing, there’s an array of activities that can provide students with the quintessential Southern California experience.


Rents range from about $650 for modest home-stay arrangements to $1,600 or more for luxury apartments. Long-term and short-term stay hotel arrangements are also available. Long-term stays start at $2,100 per month. Short-term stay hotel rates average $80 to $250 per night depending on the season, location, and rating.

GIA has a list of rental properties; however, GIA does not screen these listings, and does not offer a roommate placement service.
