Cal State Monterey Bay provides over 7,500 students an extraordinary opportunity to learn on a residential campus just one mile from the shores of the beautiful Monterey Bay. Our diverse student body receives personal attention in small classes while pursuing degrees in 25 undergraduate and seven graduate majors. The campus has also established an unmatched record in service learning and community outreach. Cal State Monterey Bay is a two-time winner of the President’s Award for Higher Education Community Service.
Monterey Bay is on the central coast of California, just two hours south of San Francisco. The bay itself is one of the largest marine protected areas in the world and home to whales, deep sea anglerfish, and of course our mascot, sea otters. The CSUMB campus is close to pristine beaches, redwood forests, tide pools, and the Fort Ord National Monument.
