The university is located in the city of Carson, a city of 93,000 residents and one of the many municipalities that border the city of Los Angeles. Cultural, performance and sports venues in downtown Los Angeles are about 15 minutes away and the South Bay beach communities are a few minutes away to the west and south. The Home Depot Center, a 125-acre sports center developed by AEG and home to Major League Soccer's L.A. Galaxy and Chivas USA, is located on the CSUDH campus.

The campus is strategically located in the heart of a major technological, industrial and transportation complex in Southern California.
