Why live on Campus?


It's the best way to get to know your community. The students here represent a wide array of backgrounds, cultures, life-styles and attitudes. Our on-campus residences provide a rich and unique opportunity for you to learn more about yourself and others.

We invite you to seek out experienced students, especially members of your Residential Life staff and Residential Housing Association leaders to assist you in making your stay at Cal State Monterey Bay a successful one.


Living on campus means you are close to your classes, your friends, and campus amenities such as the gym, pool, and on-campus dining. And the beach.

There are no separate bills to pay, no dishes or grocery shopping (when on a meal plan), and no hunting for parking. You’re already here!


The on-campus experience is vital to your college success. National studies show that students living on campus are more likely to complete college, get involved, have positive faculty interactions and student friendships, and feel better about their overall college experience.
