Campus information

  • A technology-rich campus 

The entire campus is equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi Internet access, and numerous "smart" classrooms offer advanced multimedia equipment as a teaching and learning tool.

  • A fun campus 

More than 100 student clubs and organizations, the Clarke Field House and an active Associated Students, Inc.

  • An expanding campus 

Construction on our new university student union is now underway. In addition, a state-of-the-art Social & Behavioral Sciences building, a parking structure, and a public safety building have been completed in the last two years.

  • A beautiful campus 

304 rolling acres nestled into the foothills above the City of San Marcos, and a short distance to the beaches of the Pacific Ocean and the Mexican border.

CSU San Marcos is conveniently located in North San Diego County — only a short drive from the City of San Diego, Riverside County, and Orange County.


California State University San Marcos is a small, friendly campus located in a safe, suburban city surrounded by rolling hills and scenic views. The campus has many facilities available to students, including a modern library, computer rooms, a language laboratory, a dining hall, and a student health center.

One of the best ways for international students to expand their social contacts and circle of friends is to join one of the more than 80 student clubs at CSUSM, including the International Club.
