California State University, Northridge (also known as CSUN, Cal State Northridge) is a public university in the San Fernando Valley below the Santa Susana Mountains, in the community of Northridge within the City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles, California, USA.

CSUN is a campus of the California State University (CSU) system. It was founded first as the Valley satellite campus of Cal State Los Angeles (CSULA) amongst old walnut and citrus groves. It then became an independent college in 1958 as San Fernando Valley State College, with major campus master planning and construction. The University adopted its current name of California State University, Northridge in 1972.[2] It has become the third largest university in the California State System after Cal State Long Beach (CSULB) and Cal State Fullerton (CSUF),[3] and the 4th largest overall in California[citation needed].

CSUN offers a variety of programs leading to bachelor's degrees in 61 fields, master's degrees in 42 fields, and a doctoral degree in educational leadership. The university has over 150,000 alumni. It's also home to a summer musical theater/theater program known as TADW (TeenAge Drama Workshop) that leads teenagers through an intensive 6-week training of the fine arts. Cal State Northridge is home to the National Center on Deafness, and each year the university hosts the International Conference on Technology and Persons with Disabilities.
