Welcome to College Portrait. College Portrait provides a snapshot of CSUN. Founded in 1958, CSUN is a vibrant and global community located on 356-acres in the heart of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley.
College Portrait covers topics from admissions and important deadlines to academics, athletics, costs of attendance, financial aid and scholarships, on-campus housing and jobs.
You’ll also find information about life as a Matador, and the many resources — academic, social and professional — available to our students. With more than 200 CSUN clubs and organizations as well as research opportunities, internships and jobs on- and off-campus to choose from, our students easily find their niche here in Northridge and acquire a solid foundation for the future.
Once you’ve familiarized yourself with our campus, feel free to check it out in person by going on a campus tour led by one of our University Ambassadors. To book a tour, contact Student Outreach and Recruitment.
