WesternU California Campus

Our Campus The Heart of Southern California

Pomona is located about 30 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles; 27 miles southeast of Pasadena and 23 miles north of Anaheim. The LA region is one of the world’s most diverse metropolitan areas and, of course, well-known for its beautiful sunshine weather throughout the year. Pomona is part of the region’s foothill communities, and with it comes a sense of serenity. If you love nature, you only have a short drive to beaches (Huntington, Santa Monica), mountains (Mt. Badly, Mt. Wilson) or the desert (Coachella, Palm Springs). If you would like to explore culture, recreation and resorts, you are within an hour of Disneyland, Dolby Theater (Home of the Academy Awards), The Getty, Grammy Museum, Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles County Fair, Knott’s Berry Farm, Mountain High, the Rose Bowl, Snow Summit and Universal Studios.
