About U.L.

Nestled among the rolling hills and flower fields of northern Santa Barbara County, the University of Lompoc is a private, non-sectarian baccalaureate institution. Offering a wide range of fully-accredited degree programs while emphasizing a well-rounded liberal arts education, U.L. also specializes in the agricultural and engineering disciplines valuable to our surrounding communities.

At U.L., we are especially proud of our ethnic and cultural diversity and ability to welcome students, faculty, and staff members with disabilities. As Provost Dr. Mary Cheng explains: “We believe that the University of Lompoc is first in the country to achieve full compliance with Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act—in our web presence, instructional materials, and procurement process. We have even invited an Office of Civil Rights audit to confirm this claim and identify any problems that we might have missed.”

With small classes, one of the best student-faculty ratios in the country, numerous extra-curricular activities, and a family-like social environment, the University of Lompoc is truly a place for all students to grow to their full potential.
