At the California campus, students live in one of six on-campus, single-sex residential halls. Described by The Princeton Review as “dorms like palaces,” these buildings are designed with beauty, contemplation, and community in mind. Each offers lounges, study areas, free laundry facilities, and exercise rooms, as well as a courtyard, which serves both as a social venue and an outdoor study space.
The majestic chapel of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity sits at the head of the academic quadrangle. With its dome, signifying the College’s fidelity to Rome, and its bell tower, evocative of the Spanish missions, the Chapel draws upon the Church’s rich tradition of sacred architecture to reflect the beauty, grandeur, and permanence of the Catholic faith.
The California campus is located in the foothills of the Topatopa mountain range, with picturesque running and hiking trails. It is also within a short drive of Ventura’s beaches; the Getty Center, Griffith Observatory, and Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles; historic Santa Barbara; the scenic Ojai Valley; and the Rose Bowl and art museums of Pasadena.
As the students live, learn, and pray together, they carry on the great discussions that are the lifeblood of the College’s academic program and its vibrant community.
