Campus information

West Palm Beach Campus

Palm Beach Atlantic University's 29-acre campus is consistently ranked among the most beautiful in the United States by national Web and print publications. Just across the Royal Park Bridge from the island of Palm Beach, the campus is within easy walking, biking or boarding distance of the the Atlantic Ocean and its beaches and the shops of Worth Avenue. Just as easily accessible are the resturants, theaters and shopping venues of Clematis Street and CityPlace, including the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. More important, is the campus' proximity to numerous Fortune 500 companies with offices in Palm Beach and West Palm Beach. Many such businesses offer internships, part-time positions and full-time employment for top graduates. The City of West Palm Beach also is part of the Miami-Dade-Broward-Palm Beach Metroplex -- home to 6.5 million people. Southeast Florida often is called the "Capitol of the Caribbean" and is the gateway to business interests throughout the state and in Central and South America. The Warren Libary  is one of the signature structures on the PBA campus, along with the DeSantis Family Chapel and the Lassiter Student Center.
