Welcome to California Baptist University
Located 60 miles east of Los Angeles, California Baptist University is one of the fastest-growing private Christian universities in the region. CBU’s 200-acre suburban Riverside campus is located between Southern California beaches and mountain resorts—an ideal place for students to discover and live their purpose.
CBU offers the expansive range of academic programs and student support services you would expect from a large university while preserving the vibrant social and spiritual life that makes small schools so appealing. CBU students can enjoy mouthwatering menus at the University’s spacious cafeteria, a cool swim in the enormous pool in the Lancer Aquatics Center, solitude in the historic Annie Gabriel Library, school pride at athletic events, and spiritual renewal at weekly chapel meetings.
The Office of International Student Services
The Office of International Student Services works to meet the unique needs of the international student population and facilitate their successful integration to the United States and CBU. This office provides academic and immigration advising for international students and hosts events and ongoing programs to promote cultural understanding across campus and serve as a bridge to connect international students to the greater CBU community.
