Cultural Events: CSU Dominguez Hills celebrates the arts and hosts a range of performances, workshops, exhibits, and festivals throughout the year. The Department of Theatre and Dance stages five theatrical and dnace productions each season in the 485-seat University Theatre and the intimate 70-seat Edison Studio Theatre. One of the major exhibition spaces in the South Bay, the University Art Gallery presents 10 exhibitions a year, including a series of student showcase, that explore different artistic styles, cultures, historical periods, social movements, and media. The university is also home to the CSUDH Pow Wow that honors the culture and traditions of America's indigenous people, an Unity Fest, a day-long multicultural celebration.
Campus Environment and Facilities: The CSU Dominguez Hills campus sits on 346 acres. Designed by famed modernist architect A. Quincy Jones in the 1960s, the campus embraces the Southern California climate. Jones' signature design that blurred the boundaries between indoor and outdoor space is present in many of the original buildings and has continued to be a primary architectural feature of the campus's more modern structures. Landscaped courtyards, greens and commons create a park-like feel to the campus, and large pedestrian pathways lined by eucalyptus or other shade trees make for a pleasant walk between classes.
Signature buildings include the Loker Student Union (LSU) and the Library South Wing. The expanded and renovated LSU features 120,000 square feet of food vendor space, offices and conference rooms, lounge and study seating, and event and dining facilities—including the beautiful 800-seat Dominguez Ballroom, a fine dining restaurant, and a sports bar. In 2010, CSUDH opened the Library South wing, a five-story 140,000-square-foot addition to the Leo F. Cain Library, that features 1,600 reader stations, two dedicated computer labs, reading and study rooms, a state-of-the-art archival storage and research area, conference rooms, events center, and an art gallery.
CSUDH Orthotics and Prosthetics Education Center: The CSU Dominguez Hills Orthotics and Prosthetics Education Center is located in Los Alamitos, Calif. The 12,000 square-foot facility contains both classrooms and several laboratory spaces. Faculty and students alike have the opportunity to rotate into VA prosthetic, orthotic, and other medical clinics to enhance their patient care skills. Also, active clinical rotations are in place with large and small private O&P providers: Hanger’s major central fabrication facility, Rancho Los Amigos Rehabilitation Center, and the Balboa Naval Medical Center’s C-5 program in San Diego, where combat wounded soldiers receive treatment.
The StubHub Center: The StubHub Center is situated on 125 acres of the CSU Dominguez Hills campus and features state-of-the art stadiums and facilities for soccer, tennis, track & field, cycling, lacrosse, rugby, volleyball, baseball, softball, basketball and other sports. Designated as an “Official U.S. Olympic Training Site,” the StubHub Center is the nation’s most complete training facility for Olympic, amateur and professional athletes. The complex includes a 27,000-seat soccer stadium, 8,000-seat tennis stadium, 10,000-seat track & field facility and a 2,450-seat indoor velodrome. The LA Galaxy Major League Soccer team call StubHub Center home. In 2017, the LA Chargers National Football League team will play home games at StubHub Center while construction of an NFL stadium in Inglewood, Calif. is completed.
The California Academy of Mathematics and Science: The California Academy of Math and Science (CAMS) is located on the campus of CSU Dominguez Hills. CAMS is a comprehensive public, four-year high school which seeks to increase the nation’s pool of graduates in mathematics and science. CSUDH partners with the Academy through programs that offer college-level courses to CAMS students.
