Plan ahead to have fun and to exercise in and around Monterey Bay! CSUMB offers a variety of recreational options through courses, Adventure Connections, and student organizations.
The Otter Aquatic Center has an outdoor pool with a lift, and roll in showers with wall benches. If you need an assistant at the pool, lift and/or locker room, plan to arrange your own personal care attendant.
The Otter Sports Center has a gym, weights and some machines that are usable from a wheelchair. The Otter Sports Center is on a hill, with limited wheelchair accessible parking. Contact Parking Services at (831) 582-3573 and SDR if you have difficulties finding accessible parking. People with mobility limitations may need to park across the road from the Otter Sports Center, by Ocean Hall (Bldg. 86) or arrange rides via the wheelchair accessible Otter Trolley or Monterey-Salinas Transit.
Off road trails and the beach may be accessed through borrowing CSUMB’s De-Bug Beach wheelchair with large tires. Contact SDR or Outdoor Recreation. Priority is for science field trips, courses and other required activities.
CSUMB also has an adaptive handcycle available for loan or rent through the Otter Cycle Center. For students to borrow this bike at no charge, they must meet with an SDR Advisor and have SDR notify the Cycle Center of eligibility for no rental fee.
