Our Location (Los Angeles)

Loyola Marymount University enjoys all of the benefits that come with being located in one of the most exciting, diverse and vibrant cities in the nation. And while there are hundreds of California universities to choose from, our unique location on the bluffs above Los Angeles gives us the distinction of also being one of the most beautiful universities in California, set in a peaceful residential environment with easy access to the exciting offerings and opportunities of Los Angeles.

Where else can you surf at dawn, catch your favorite band at an afternoon street festival and take in a Hollywood premier that same night? There's a reason Los Angeles is considered the nation's cultural capital, and it's an amazing environment for your college years.

The City of Los Angeles offers unequaled natural beauty – the sparkling Pacific Ocean, the towering San Gabriel and Santa Monica mountain ranges and the rugged Mojave Desert. Whatever your taste for the outdoors, you'll find it in stunning Southern California.  For those new to Los Angeles, Loyola Marymount University provides organized outings to help acquaint you with your new city.

Beyond its physical beauty and myriad of entertainment options, Los Angeles is the most diverse city in the world.  You'll engage every type of person and confront extremes of class and culture. What better preparation for life in the 21st century?
