New KGI Location in Claremont Village Opens November 15

A ribbon-cutting ceremony on November 15 will mark the official opening of a new Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) building in the west Claremont Village. Located at 1 North Indian Hill Boulevard, within walking distance of the existing KGI campus, the building will house administrative offices as well as a variety of spaces specially designed for the educational and professional benefit of students.

Students will have access to meeting rooms outfitted with white boards and the latest presentation technology, providing spaces for them to collaborate on team projects and conduct group calls. The building will also feature multiple areas for study between meetings, career development training rooms and a boardroom.

The location will also offer KGI students and employees more opportunities to frequent the diverse retail and dining businesses in Claremont Village, including food options housed on the main floor of the building. In addition, they will have greater proximity to the students, campuses, and activities of the other schools in the Claremont College Consortium.

“Our new facility will provide tremendous educational enhancements and convenience for our students while bringing us even closer to the Claremont Colleges community and our Claremont Village neighbors,” says KGI President Sheldon M. Schuster, who will be joined at the ribbon-cutting ceremony by local dignitaries such as City of Claremont Mayor Sam Pedroza. “All of us at KGI are looking to the opening of this building with great anticipation.”
