Loyola Marymount University (LMU) is located in Los Angeles, California, just minutes away from the Pacific Ocean and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Founded in 1911, LMU is a highly regarded, medium-sized comprehensive university. Consistently ranked among the "Best Universities" in the Western Region by U.S. News & World Report, LMU balances a challenging Liberal Arts and Sciences curriculum with outstanding professional programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Loyola Marymount offers a number of engaging and exciting academic programs including 60 majors, 55 minors, 39 master's degrees, one doctoral degree and 10 credential programs. LMU students engage in research projects and work closely with faculty mentors starting as undergraduate students.

More than 94% of each first-year class lives in student housing where they are part of a safe, diverse and dynamic social environment that helps establish community and build friendships. About 60% of the total student body population lives on-campus and many students choose to live on-campus throughout their years here because of the convenience and active campus life.
