California State University Channel Islands is located in California's Ventura County, in Camarillo, California. The university provides undergraduate and graduate education, which facilitates learning within and across disciplines through integrative approaches, emphasizes experiential and service learning, and graduates students with multicultural and international perspectives.

The university was opened in 2002, as the 23rd campus in the California State University System.

It was built in the early part of the 20th century, as the former Camarillo State Hospital. The sprawling 1930s Spanish revival buildings, tiled fountains, Bell Tower, cloistered hallways, open space, and many courtyards are being renovated to house the new state-of-the-art 21st-century facility.

The campus site represents a significant and interesting segment of Southern California history. It depicts stories of the Chumash people, Californians, politicians, early ranchers, captains of agribusiness, Camarillo State Hospital associates, field workers, and Ventura County families.

Cal State Channel Islands, as it is often refered to, offers majors in 10 areas of study art, computer science, business, English, liberal studies, environmental science and resource management, history, mathematics, and psychology.

Courses are taught by qualified, well-experienced faculty, which includes 60 full-time professors and about 145 lecturers.
