CSUN's Conference Services are everything you could ask for! They have a talented and dedicated staff and assist from planning to implementation with programs. During the last 8 years they have continuously helped us deliver and improve every year -- we are in part an exceptional Summer program because of them. Utilizing their amazing site and resources we have continued to grow and thrive year over year. 

Operations Manager, Embassy Summer, EC English North America

We've thoroughly enjoyed working with the Summer Conferences staff at CSUN over the past few years. They are professional and organized, with exceptional customer service and personalized attention. They have clean and spacious accommodations, meeting spaces and classrooms to help us successfully carry out our program, and a top-notch dining facility that offers restaurant-quality food options at every meal. We run a lot of day trips from CSUN and there is quick and easy access to LA and the surrounding area but also to Malibu and Santa Barbara, making their location ideal. Our experience with the CSUN Summer Conferences has been fantastic and we'd highly recommend it to groups of any size and needs. 

Director of North American Operations, Plus U.S. Corporation

It's always a pleasure to work with their team! We always choose Conference Services for the 24/7 support that our international groups need, which includes smooth check-in at any hour, around-the-clock security and personalized customer service. Our students tell us it makes CSUN a home away from home!

CSUN College for Graduate, International and Midcareer Education

The Educational Opportunity Program would like to thank CSUN’s Conference Services for their dedication and true commitment to students. We have housed our EOP Transitional Programs in CSUN Dorms for many years and each year the staff have been responsive, caring and understanding, especially when it comes to the needs of EOP and our students. The Conference Assistants we are assigned every year take pride in their duties and are very professional yet caring and they do their best support EOP. They followed up regularly to ensure the program’s needs were being met as well as ensuring that our co-curricular activities held in Housing ran smoothly. Additionally, the staff was able to help our program day and night regardless of any concerns or emergencies. Concerns would include providing support to students that may have lost their dorm keycard, to requesting additional tables/chairs, reservations, and any dormitory issues our students brought to our attention. We always look forward to collaborating with Conference Services and we definitely look forward to once again being on campus and having our Transitional Programs in Housing!!
