Students on Cliffs



While 90 acres overlooking the Pacific sure makes for a stunning setting to study, it’s the community of students who live, serve, and grow together here that makes PLNU unlike anywhere else.

Whether you live on campus, transfer from another school, or commute from the greater San Diego area, you’ll find plenty of ways to make PLNU home. Between the vast number of opportunities to learn, lead, play, and worship, there are seemingly endless combinations to find life at Loma uniquely made for you.
