The Chalon Campus
The Chalon Campus is an impressive multi-level complex of buildings and gardens on a thousand-foot ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Getty Center and close to cultural enrichment and recreation. The architecture is white Spanish colonial, with arched walkways connecting many of the buildings. Mary Chapel occupies the central position on campus with wide stone stairways approaching it on two sides.
In the Charles Willard Coe Library, students have free access to library stacks and to special collections of art, music, and literature. The rare book treasury contains, among other rare editions, a fine collection of documents and manuscripts relating to the Oxford Movement and to John Henry Newman. Also housed in the library is the Instructional Media Center.
The Administration Building accommodates the offices of the President, Academic Vice President/Provost, Registrar, Business Office, Admissions, and science classrooms and laboratories.
The five-story Humanities Building contains classrooms, conference rooms, Chief Financial Officer, the Office of Student Financing, the Academic Advisement Center, Campus Ministry, special facilities for the Music Department, faculty, student, and administrative offices, the Learning Center, and the Health Services Center.
