PLNU is located on the coast of San Diego--literally. We have beach access from our campus, but we are also very centrally located. PLNU’s campus is five minutes from the airport, ten minutes from downtown San Diego, thirty minutes from the border, an hour from Orange County and two hours from Los Angeles.
Campus Facilities & Equipment
Point Loma is constantly striving to better our campus facilities and equipment for our students. Our music and athletic training facilities are state of the art. Just within the past three years, PLNU has finished construction on new Student Financial Services building, new residence halls, the new Fermanian School of Business, and is nearing completion on the new School of Theology and Christian Ministry. Our sciences have recently benefitted from an NSF grant that allowed for the purchase of brand new lab equipment. Every area of PLNU is kept up to date to ensure easy informational access on campus
Students have many opportunities to take advantage of what is available off campus. Through PLNU-sponsored study-abroad programs and affiliations with other accredited programs, almost 11 percent of our current undergraduate population (compared to one percent nationally) and 30 percent of our recent graduates have studied abroad, traveling to countries such as Brazil, New Zealand, Italy, Egypt, Israel, France and South Africa. Students are also encourage to be a part of internships, whether your major is Business or Fashion Merchandising. In past internships, students have worked with the Birch Aquarium, NBC 7/39 San Diego, the San Diego Mayor’s Office, Naval Ocean System Center and the San Diego Padres. With more than sixty different majors and concentrations, students have a variety of options available to them at PLNU.
