The Master Plan calls for a range of essential improvements that will allow LMU to remain competitive and continue drawing the nation’s finest students and faculty.
Increased and modernized housing will raise the proportion of students living on campus from 60% to 75%. A cutting-edge Life Sciences center will be the first of several new academic facilities. And an expanded network of walkways will better integrate LMU’s 142-acre, oceanfront campus.
Loyola Marymount University has been a proud member of Los Angeles’ Westchester neighborhood since 1929. Much of LMU’s oceanfront campus is free and open to the public, including the brand-new William H. Hannon Library.
In addition, the LMU family embodies a strong commitment to giving back to their community. In a typical year, students, faculty and staff volunteer more than 170,000 hours on behalf of some 350 different non-profit organizations throughout Los Angeles.
LMU is a vital economic presence, as well. After completion of the Master Plan, the university will generate approximately $520 million a year in Los Angeles County – including $100 million in student spending – and support some 6,100 jobs.
LMU was proud to be named a “Treasure of Los Angeles” in 2007 by the Central City Association.
