Instructional Facilities and Labs
Humphreys University is located in north Stockton, about five miles from downtown. The University moved to this eight-acre campus from downtown Stockton in 1966. The campus is one block east of Pacific Avenue, a major thoroughfare in Stockton. Public transportation runs directly to the campus.
The main academic building houses several classrooms, computer labs, and administrative offices. The west campus is composed of four buildings, which house the Academy of Business, Law and Education (ABLE), a charter high school operated as a subsidiary non-profit corporation by Humphreys University. Both the main and west campuses have outdoor courtyard areas with ample space for students to study, eat lunch, or gather with friends. Recently, the physical plant was expanded by approximately 24,000 square feet, consisting of two new buildings constructed on vacant land on the campus. The library building houses the university library, a student lounge, and the administrative offices of Humphreys University Drivon School of Law. The classroom building includes eight classrooms, as well as 18 faculty offices and administrative offices. A central courtyard provides an attractive place for students to gather and socialize outside and is served by a wireless Internet network. In addition, another 15,000-square-foot facility was added in 2010 providing ten additional classrooms.
The University’s library is a major learning center, not only for students and faculty, but also for alumni and the community. Extended hours of operation provide a convenient and easily accessible community resource. A branch of the Stockton Public Library is directly across the street from the University with a large general collection which is available to all students.
The Humphreys University Modesto branch campus is located in north Modesto in Stanislaus County.
Modesto is a thriving community with a population of over 200,000. Modesto offers many outlets for the dramatic arts through several local organizations including the symphony, ballet, opera, and cultural scenes. Technology is positioning Stanislaus County as a global center for agribusiness. Due to its central location in the state, Modesto has become a prime destination for tourism. With over 72 city parks, the area offers many recreational opportunities. The Modesto campus is located within walking distance of several shopping centers and restaurants.
Facilities include classrooms, computer laboratories, and faculty offices. School housing is not provided in Modesto. Rooms and apartments are readily available within walking distance of the campus and throughout the community.

Students and employees found in violation of this policy are subject to various sanctions including dismissal from the University. Copies of the substance abuse program and policy are distributed annually to all students and employees. Anyone who has not yet received a copy can obtain one from the Registrar’s Office.
Any student in need of counseling is encouraged to contact the Director of Administrative Services. All contacts are held in strict confidence. No student or employee should fear negative academic, economic, or other ramifications arising out of seeking assistance. See General Catalog and Student Code of Conduct.
