Village pride is evident in Mangilao where each side of Route 10 is lined with local murals depicting island life.
The village is home to Guam’s largest secondary educational center, The University of Guam, located in the heart of Mangilao. Notable features of the UOG Campus are the Planetarium and the UOG Fieldhouse, one of the largest indoor venues on Guam. Many students live in this area, including Micronesian islanders, making Mangilao a culturally diverse village with a mix of houses and apartments.
The Department of Agriculture is located just west of the Department of Corrections on Dairy Road Route 15. The Mangilao Golf course, with some of the most picturesque island views, is located east of the junction with Route 10 on Back Road to Anderson or Route 15.
