Los Angeles City College (LACC) is a public community college in East Hollywood, LosAngeles. A part of the LosAngeles Community College District, it is located on Vermont Avenue south of Santa Monica Boulevard on the former campus of the University of California, LosAngeles (UCLA).

History

The LACC campus was originally a farm outside Los Angeles, owned by Dennis Sullivan. It is one of nine separate college campuses of the LosAngeles Community College District. When the Pacific Electric Interurban Railroad connected downtown LosAngeles and Hollywood in 1909, the area began to develop rapidly. In 1914, the LA Board of Education moved the teachers' Normal School to the site. The Italian Romanesque campus became the original campus of the University of California, LosAngeles (UCLA) in 1919. In need of more space, UCLA moved to its present location in Westwood in 1929 and the Los Angeles Board of Education bought the site for $700,000. On September 9, 1929, the campus opened its doors as Los Angeles Junior College with over 1,300 students and 54 teachers. The campus changed its name to Los Angeles City College in 1938.[3]
