At Cypress College, we serve all students who can benefit from instruction. Here, it is not about where you have been, but where you are going. This is a community — connected by the possibility of a brighter future. This is a place where people say hello and the smiles are genuine. Our founding faculty created this environment in 1966 and it is our honor to carry that tradition forward in the spirit of a collective learning community.

Set on 110 acres, Cypress College is an educational park. The campus features a grass-lined pond in the center of a quad bordered by the Library/Learning Resource Center, the Student Center, Student Activities, and the Science/Engineering/Math Building. It’s a place to relax and enjoy lunch, to study, or to hang out with friends. Ample, high-speed wifi covers the entire campus, including the athletic fields and parking lots on the perimeter of the college.

After class (and studying), there’s a lot to do for fun in and around Cypress College.

The campus is just a stone’s throw from Downtown Disney (and Disney Resort) and Knott’s Berry Farm, and just miles from Huntington Beach and Long Beach.

Cypress College is easily accessible from several Southern California freeways, including the 5, 91, 605, 22 and 405 (visit our maps page), making the 100-acre campus easy to get to from cities the cities in our primary service area — Anaheim, Buena Park, Garden Grove, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, and Stanton — as well as neighboring towns such as Artesia, Bellflower, Cerritos, Downey, Huntington Beach, Lakewood, La Mirada, Long Beach, and Norwalk.
