Pepperdine Malibu Campus

Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, Pepperdine University's Malibu campus commands a majestic view of the Pacific Ocean. The winding seashore, the rugged beauty of Malibu Canyon, and the clean ocean air enhance the towering campus location.

The moderate seaside climate permits year-round outdoor activities, and along with the recreation facilities on campus, students have access to nearby beaches with opportunities for surfing, fishing, and boating.

Less than an hour from downtown Los Angeles, Malibu is a short drive from many of the area's premier cultural and recreational centers, as well as world-famous venues, including the Getty Center, the Greek Theatre, Griffith Observatory, the Hollywood Bowl, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Music Center, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and Staples Center.

Living on campus in Malibu—required for Seaver College freshmen and sophomores—is the best way to experience all the transformational academic, social, and spiritual growth that a college lifestyle has to offer. The relationships and sense of community developed during these years are crucial to the college experience, particularly within a dynamic environment that promotes fellowship and unity through social events, mentorship programs, service projects, and other group activities.
