Golden West College was built in 1966 on the Lewis Farm, which was a working farm for years. As you walk on campus you will see some of the original farm equipment used as part of the landscaping.
Located in the coastal community of Huntington Beach, also known as “Surf City,” Golden West College’s 122-acre college is regarded as one of the most beautiful campuses in Southern California.

We provide a safe and secure location, a multicultural environment, and an active student body. GWC is a great beginning for a variety of students’ goals and interests in higher education. We invite you to explore the Oceans of Opportunity that await you at Golden West.
