The Lakeside campus is based at the historic Lucerne Hotel.
At a historic, castle-like edifice, surrounded by towering oaks, overlooking the largest fresh water lake in California, Marymount is proud to offer its newest campus––and a unique opportunity for upper-division and graduate students to advance or complete their academic degrees.
The seven-acre campus includes plenty of space for field sports, from Frisbee to football. Beyond the campus, fishing, boating, and kayaking are popular in the region’s lakes, and there are a number of scenic hiking trails and bicycling routes.
Various venues provide live music weekly, at least seasonally. Lake County has two radio stations—a country music station and a Pacifica network station, mixing local news and topical discussion along with diverse musical programming; National Public Radio (NPR) and various commercial radio stations are available from neighboring counties. Television reception requires cable or satellite service.
There are multi-screen movie theaters in Lakeport, Clearlake, and Ukiah, as well as various other entertainment options. Lake County communities also host a range of special events, from the Kelseyville Pear Festival and bass fishing tournaments, to the county fair.
While routinely-scheduled public transportation services from the Lake Transit District are available to connect students to major towns in the area, it is generally advantageous for students to have their own motor vehicles and/or bicycles to commute to work sites and other venues. The college does not provide regular shuttle services to the diverse locations at which students may conduct their research and internship activities.
Marymount California University is a liberal arts institution offering associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees and serving students in three California communities: Palos Verdes and San Pedro in Los Angeles County and Lucerne in Lake County.
