Campus Summary

California State University San Marcos offers the ambiance of a small, personal campus with the unequaled value of the California State University. Students benefit from the latest equipment and facilities, a superb faculty that enjoys teaching, and a rigorous academic program that prepares students for a successful life.

Founded in 1989, CSU San Marcos is located on a 304-acre hillside overlooking the city of San Marcos. It is fifteen miles east of the ocean; just thirty miles north of downtown San Diego. Students are able to enjoy the resources of a major metropolitan area while escaping many of the stresses of urban life.

In less than two decades, the campus has distinguished itself. CSU San Marcos’ programs in teacher education are renowned for their school and community collaboration. The College of Business Administration receives national attention for the “Senior Experience” Program, which takes teams of students off campus for projects with companies and organizations. Programs in the sciences and in visual and performing arts are regionally acclaimed for academic rigor, innovation, and career preparation.

The campus is poised for continued growth, adding new academic programs and facilities over the next few years. In 2008, the campus opened a new light rail station, providing convenient access to beaches as well as local cities.
