Details of Residential Life
Marymount California University offers premier dining at "Bistro by the Sea," the Oceanview (main) campus restaurant. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served Monday through Thursday. Breakfast and lunch are available on Friday. Outtakes at the San Pedro Residential Campus offers snacks, coffee and other beverages, candy and an array of treats.
All residential students participate in a meal plan. There are a variety of options from which to choose, including weekly plans that provide 14, 12 or 10 meals and flexible Café and Outtakes options. On Friday nights and weekends, students often prepare food in the kitchens at their residences or enjoy a rich variety of dining options in the Palos Verdes/San Pedro area. Those who do not wish to cook or eat out may sign up for weekend boxed meals provided by the Café.
Marymount’s shuttle service between the Oceanview campus, the Waterfront (San Pedro) campus and the residential communities runs hourly weekdays from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. when classes are in session. In addition, shuttle drivers are pleased to make stops at banks, grocery stores, fitness facilities and other service locations. Shuttle Bus Schedule
We believe that students learn from each other, both in and out of the classroom. Living in residence is an integral part of the Marymount experience. The education acquired from the social and interpersonal experiences of residential life plays a vital role in student development. As a result, all freshman, sophomore, and students enrolled in Kings Colleges Academic Prep. program students must live in residence unless they meet any of the following exceptions:
- 21 years or older
- Living with parents or close relatives within 30 miles of campus
- Married, in a domestic partnership or living with a dependent child
- Current active military or veteran's status
- Qualified for financial hardship as determined by the Financial Aid office
