The University of San Diego (USD) is set at the edge of an international gateway on a campus that's consistently ranked among the nation's most beautiful. Our focus on academic excellence — inspired by faith, infused with contemporary Catholic values and nurtured in a warm, community environment — empowers innovative, confident, original thinkers to make positive contributions by confronting humanity's urgent challenges in places near and far.
USD is located in one of the world's great diverse urban centers. San Diego's proximity to the U.S.-Mexico border, where communities and cultures converge, provides our students and faculty members with unique opportunities to learn, to put theory into action and to find new ways to lead purposeful lives.
Both of the libraries on campus — the Copley Library and the Legal Research Center (LRC) — are places where learning leads to discovery, where discovery brings about breakthroughs, and where purpose inspires true passion. Our Information Technology Services (ITS) department supports the University by working with colleagues within and beyond the campus to enhance teaching and learning, support research, streamline business functions, facilitate outreach, and foster strategic partnerships.
