About the University CSU Dominguez Hills holds the Carnegie classification of Master's L and is a federally recognized Hispanic-Serving Institution.

While the university enrolls traditional full-time students, many students enroll part-time and attend late afternoon, evening and weekend classes because of work and family responsibilities.

The Location The university is located in Carson, California, in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County. Its 346-acre park-like campus is situated in the historic Rancho San Pedro, the oldest Spanish land grant in the Los Angeles area. The site remained in the continuous possession of the Dominguez family for seven generations - from its inception in 1794 to its acquisition by the State of California.
The Region The South Bay is one of the most culturally, economically, and ethnically diverse areas in the United States, with a largely even distribution of the population with African, Asian/Pacific Islander, European, and Latino ancestry. The university is located in the city of Carson, a city of 93,000 residents and one of the many municipalities that border the city of Los Angeles. Cultural, performance and sports venues in downtown Los Angeles are about 15 minutes away and the South Bay beach communities are a few minutes away to the west and south. The Home Depot Center, a 125-acre sports center developed by AEG and home to Major League Soccer's L.A. Galaxy and Chivas USA, is located on the CSUDH campus.
The campus is strategically located in the heart of a major technological, industrial and transportation complex in Southern California. This area includes the massive Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles' Southern California's gateway to international commerce. The South Bay region is also home to aerospace, oil refinery, healthcare and automotive industries.
