At CSUN, Black Matadors Rise.

CSUN is your space to belong, to be bold, to stand for what you believe in as you build your future and write your own CSUN story.

As one of the largest universities in the country, CSUN is in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. We’re only a short ride from Hollywood, the entertainment capital of the world, and Greater Los Angeles is a gateway to the global economy. Our nearly 400,000 alumni work as leaders, innovators and creators within every sector of our society.

When you become a Matador, you’ll have access to nationally ranked programs and award-winning researchers and scholars as you learn and grow in a genuinely welcoming and inclusive environment. But at CSUN, it’s not just our programs and services that help us stand out. At the heart of all we do is a caring community of faculty and staff who are fiercely committed to student success and helping you reach your full potential. Our campus may be large, but you won’t be lost in the crowd.

We got you.

As you explore all that CSUN has to offer, and resources specific to our Black community, we encourage you to reach out with questions.

You Belong Here.

We want you to be part of our community! Learn more about our campus and community by taking a virtual tour or scheduling a visit. (Guided, in-person tours are available during the semester and on a limited basis over the summer.)
