Your Home Away From Home
Nestled halfway between the dynamic rush of Los Angeles and the laidback vibe of Santa Barbara, Thousand Oaks—one of California's safest cities—offers the perfect blend of city, beach, mountains and college life. With 330 days of sunshine and year-round temperatures hovering close to 70 degrees, you'll spend a lot of time outdoors here.
It's not just the Southern California sun, or the short distance to the coast. What really sets Cal Lutheran apart is our community—a welcoming place where you're encouraged to discover your purpose and empowered to put it into action.
