Ontario, Calif. – June 3, 2019 – DeVry University and its Keller Graduate School of Management are proud to announce the opening of their new Ontario campus at 2970 E.

“We are excited that DeVry University has chosen to locate their campus in the City of Ontario,” said Mayor Paul S.

DeVry recently moved to its new campus from Pomona to Ontario to provide a more collaborative education environment for students. The new campus will occupy 13,000 square feet on the first floor with seven classrooms. The layout of the new campus features a refreshed, open-concept design with common areas for students to study individually or collaborate with peers.
“We are proud to be a part of the Ontario community,” said Danielle Sperandeo, PhD, campus dean. “After being in a neighboring suburb for more than two decades, our goal was to remain in the area to continue serving our students, while being able to offer vibrant and modern educational facilities. The move to Ontario has been seamless thanks to the support of our faculty, staff and community.”
DeVry University offers associate, bachelor and master degree programs, online or at one of its 45+ locations nationwide, including Ontario.
