Point Loma Nazarene University is well known for its beautiful campus and ocean views. The University has several outdoor facilities that showcase these scenic views, which makes them perfect for a variety of events. Despite typically great weather, event planners should be aware that PLNU does not guarantee that a backup facility will be available should foul weather disrupt their event. Planners should also be aware that since PLNU's campus is alive with activity year-round, there can be no guarantee that any outdoor activity will be free from neighboring noise.
