The Claremont Colleges

As a member of the The Claremont Colleges—a collective of seven highly regarded graduate and undergraduate liberal arts colleges—CGU offers a greater breadth of faculty and campus resources than is typical of a university with 2,300 students. The Claremont Colleges Services provides academic, student, and institutional support services to all of The Claremont Colleges’ 7,700 students and 3,600 faculty and staff, offering the resources of a large university without sacrificing CGU’s unique, intimate culture. TCC members share a central library with more than two million volumes, a variety of health, counseling, and support services, a central bookstore, excellent campus dining options, and more.

Claremont and Beyond

Just an hour by car or train from Los Angeles, the City of Claremont blends small-town quietude with the amenities of a modern suburban community. Great weather year round gives you full-time access to an abundance of Southern California culture—world-famous nearby attractions include Downtown Los Angeles, Disneyland, the San Diego Zoo, the Getty Museum, and more. And with Claremont’s proximity to the mountains and Pacific Coast, surfing, hiking, camping, and snowboarding excursions are all just a day trip away.

Close to home, the nearby Claremont Village offers bountiful shopping and entertainment options, including award-winning dining, art and dance studios, boutiques, a movie theater, a comedy club, live music, and more. Nature lovers can explore the nearby San Gabriel Mountains on foot or by bike, or lounge beneath a Sycamore Oak at one of the city’s two dozen verdant parks. Abundant resources and natural beauty truly make Claremont one of Southern California’s best-kept secrets!
