Paier College Of Art To Move To Bridgeport, Change Name

Bridgeport City Website

The Paier College of Art in Connecticut announced Monday that they are moving out of Hamden and into Bridgeport.

The college will remain an independent institution but will be hosted at the Arnold Center for the Arts and Humanities at the University of Bridgeport starting this fall. The partnership will allow Paier to offer on-campus housing to their students at Bridgeport’s dormitories and other facilities like their library.

The college will also change their name simply to Paier College to reflect the growing degrees offered by the school beyond the arts.

Paier wants approval from the U.S. Department of Education to offer these new degree programs, which overlap with those offered at Bridgeport.
