Our students come from nearly 100 countries, so if you're an international student, you'll have plenty of company. We're popular among international students primarily for two reasons. First and foremost, we offer a wide range of academic and personal support services that will help you get the most out of your Cal State Northridge experience. Second, our location is sunny Los Angeles. We are just a short drive from many of the area's hottest tourist attractions — Six Flags Magic Mountain, Universal Studios and CityWalk, Rodeo Drive, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Santa Monica and Malibu.
