Our Campus

Our Campus

No one can deny Oxy’s stunning good looks.

Tucked away in the hills of Los Angeles’ Eagle Rock community, our campus is a real beauty. Designed by Rose Bowl mastermind Myron Hunt in 1911 and landscaped by Beatrix Farrand, the Oxy campus reflects its rich history (with all the modern improvements).

We reside on 120 acres studded with oak trees and eucalyptus, graceful arches and halls built in the Spanish Colonial style. State-of-the-art science facilities are just down the path from lovingly preserved historic buildings. Our solar array, one of the largest of its kind in the country, blends green technology and art. The likes of Katharine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart have strolled through the Quad, as have the inhabitants of the planet Vulcan, all while filming on campus.

The atmosphere is, in a word, idyllic—students visit and never want to leave. Somehow the L.A. traffic seems miles away, though the city is really just outside our door. An urban oasis if ever there was one.
