Cal State Monterey Bay is your university. Take advantage of the perks that come from living near the only comprehensive four-year university between Santa Cruz and San Luis Obispo.


The university draws renowned speakers, artists and performers from across the country and around the world to grace the stage at the World Theater and other campus venues. Our NCAA Division II athletic events bring action and excitement for the whole family. Check the Master Calendar to see what is happening this week.


Perhaps you want to join our staff or faculty and be part of a collaborative workplace with great benefits. We've been recognized twice by the Monterey County Business Council as one of the Best Places to Work in the region. See the job opportunities posted on our HR website.


The campus library is open to the public. Locals can use the collections inside the library for free, and get check-out privileges for a small fee.

Our aquatic center and gymnasium also open their doors to the public, allowing you to get in shape for a very affordable membership or drop-in fee.

And we'd be happy to host your organization's meeting or conference – contact Conference and Event Services to learn more about making use of the university's facilities.
