The 175-acre campus is regularly ranked as one of the most beautiful college campuses in America.

The campus also is home to the Faye Spanos Concert Hall, where employees can enjoy the work of students from the Conservatory of Music and guest artists. Employees also can enjoy watching Division I athletic competitions. Pacific is a member of the West Coast Conference and has 17 D-I sports.

The university also has campuses in Sacramento and San Francisco. The Sacramento campus is located in the Oak Park neighborhood, just a few blocks from new stores, restaurants, cafes and apartments created by former Mayor Kevin Johnson.
