Quick Facts

Located just three miles from the Pacific Ocean and spanning 323 acres of real estate, the 71-year-old campus is one of the largest universities in the state. It even has its own U.S. Postal Zip code: 90840.

Known nationally as "The Beach", our values as a community are the foundation of our brand. They inform our decision-making, how we relate to one another, and how we plan for our future. While not yet finalized, the following draft goals have emerged through the Beach 2030 strategic-planning process as those principles that are prized by – and indeed power – our community: 

  • Teaching and learning are at the center of who we are.
  • Diversity is our strength.
  • The public good is our responsibility.
  • Compassion, creativity, and innovation characterize our work.
