The Allan Hancock College Santa Maria campus is located on California's beautiful
Central Coast, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The campus lies about 35
miles south of San Luis Obispo, 60 miles north of Santa Barbara, and about 10 miles
from the ocean. The 105-acre, park-like setting contains administration and academic
departments housed in nearly three dozen buildings. The campus features a modern
Student Center; the Sports Pavilion, including the Joe White Memorial Gymnasium; and
the Marian and Severson theatres, home of the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing
Arts, the only training program of its kind in the country offered by a community
college. Other recent additions to the campus are the remodeled and expanded library/Academic
Resource Center and new community education and science buildings. Plans are currently
under way to develop and build a new Student Services One-Stop Center, an expanded
Children's Center, and new fine arts and industrial technology facilities.
