Southern California


The Perfect Location

California State University, San Bernardino's central location opens up endless possibilities of things to do in Southern California.

Beaches, mountains and deserts are about an hour away from the campus. A CSUSB student could see the sunrise at the beach, stop for lunch beside a mountain lake and finish the day by watching the sunset in the desert and enjoy the warm, sunny climate of Southern California.

The campus is also an easy drive to Las Vegas and San Diego for short weekend trips. When looking for the ideal Southern California campus location, consider CSUSB.
