The Campanile
The Campanile
Located: West End
The Cypress College campanile is an architectural feature with a long history. Campaniles were originally built as detached bell towers in Italy. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a campanile.

Today, a campanile is a freestanding tower that can found on many college and university campuses. We invite you take a walk around our campus to appreciate the many views of the campanile. Then stop by the Student Center and companion Bookstore buildings wrapped around the base of the Cypress College campanile.

With the opening of the Student Center and Bookstore, the campanile becomes a beacon of sorts, calling students to the place where they can begin their educational journey at Cypress College.
