Location & Facilities

The 225-acre (0.91 km2) campus occupies a gently sloping hillside amid the rolling hills of Southern California. Currently, the CLU campus is in the midst of an expansion. A new athletics center, The Gilbert Sports and Fitness Center, nearly doubled the size of the developed campus with its completion in 2006. Along with the new athletics center is the new outdoor, Olympic-sized swimming pool, dubbed the Samuelson Aquatic Center. A new dormitory, Grace Hall, was opened on the southwest side of campus in 2005.

It is notable that the former chicken coops mentioned above were converted into classrooms by Jefferson A. Elmendorf, the same architect who designed The Centrum. Elmendorf worked with Dr. Dahl in master planning the campus. He started in the chicken coops with a draftsman and eventually moved into the administration building where he eventually had five draftsmen/architects working for him. Elmendorf's architecture is quite distinctive and may be seen throughout Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

A new academic building, currently known as the Swenson Center for Academic Excellence, is also in the approval phase within the Thousand Oaks city government. This new facility will be built where the current tennis courts are located on the South side of campus, after they are transitioned to the North Campus athletic area.

Thousand Oaks, commonly referred to as "T.O." by residents, is a city in southeastern Ventura County, California, in the United States. It was named after the many oak trees that grace the area, and the city seal is adorned with an oak. The region has a mild, year-round Mediterranean Climate or Dry-Summer Subtropical zone climate, with warm, sunny, dry summers and cool, rainy winters. Vegetation is typical of Mediterranean environments, with chaparral and grasses on the hillsides and numerous western valley oaks.
