About | Marymount California University About – Marymount California University



Thank you for visiting Marymount California University. In just the past few years, our institution has expanded its range of four-year and graduate programs, added two dynamic campus locations, attained university status and announced an exciting new name. What hasn’t changed, however, are the core values we’ve held from the beginning. As a Catholic university, we are as committed to serving others as we are to student success. We welcome learners of all backgrounds, experiences and ages, and we expect our students to create positive change in the world.


Marymount California has three distinct campuses. Each offers a unique learning opportunity.

  • Oceanview Campus (Main) – First- and second-year core courses
  • Waterfront Campus – Upper-division and graduate courses
  • Lakeside Campus – Additional programs, service work and research opportunities


It’s why people come to Southern California

Of all the amazing things Los Angeles has to offer, the weather is high on the list. We enjoy an average high of 75 degrees and sunshine three out of four days of the year. With our warm, sunny days and cool, breezy nights, not much compares to life here in Southern California–home of our Oceanview and Waterfront campuses.
