Air Travel

The nearest major airport is Los Angeles International airport (LAX), which has excellent domestic and international connections, and is located about 25 miles from Pepperdine University's Malibu Campus. The Bob Hope Airport, located in Burbank, is approximately 35 miles from campus.

Ground Transportation

Given the distance between local airports and the Malibu campus, it is recommended that out-of-town attendees consider renting a car rather than taking a taxi or shuttle service. Renting a car provides attendees the opportunity to explore the local Malibu community in the evenings and should be comparable in price to the cost of a round-trip taxi fare.
