Long Beach City College (LBCC) opened its doors in 1927 to 503 students.  The college now enrolls more than 27,000 students.

In 1944, the college underwent a reorganization resulting in splitting the college into three divisions: the liberal arts division, the general adult division and technical institute division. The liberal arts division remained on the original college campus, and became known as the liberal arts campus. The general adult division and technical institute division offered courses at surrounding educations centers, until a second LBCC campus was opened on the former site of Hamilton Junior High School in 1949 due to increased enrollment after World War II.

The college offers 21 intercollegiate athletic programs and holds more national and state titles and bowl appearances than any other California community college. The college has twice been selected by Cal-Hi Sports as the best community college athletics program in the nation.
