In & Around Fullerton, CA

Fullerton College is located in the city of Fullerton, in Orange County, California, about thirty miles south of Los Angeles and proximal to the coastline and dozens of world-famous attractions, museums, theme parks and other points of interest.

Downtown Fullerton

The campus is within walking distance of the thriving downtown Fullerton area, where you'll find an excellent array of restaurants for every taste and budget, hang-out spots and cafés, and even one of the premier vintage clothing districts in southern California.

Theme Parks

For you out-of-staters, it might please you to discover that Disneyland is less than 5 miles away from Fullerton College... it's literally straight down Harbor Blvd.  The quainter but equally fun (and less expensive) Knott's Berry Farm is only 7 miles away.  If you're adventurous, you can also make your way north about 60 miles to Six Flags Magic Mountain, home of some of the most intense rollercoasters ever engineered.


For commuters, the beautifully-landscaped campus is easily accessible from the 57 and 91 Freeways. The college is within close walking distance from the Metrorail station in downtown Fullerton, and buses regularly drop off and pick up students in front of the college on Chapman Avenue (visit our maps page).
