About California State University

California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB or Cal State Monterey Bay) is a public university in Monterey County, California. Its main campus is located on the former military base Fort Ord, straddling the cities of Seaside and Marina, about one mile inland from Monterey Bay along the Central Coast of California. CSUMB also has locations in the towns of Monterey and Salinas. Founded in 1994, CSUMB is part of the California State University system and accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission.


Cal State Monterey Bay provides over 7,500 students with an extraordinary opportunity to learn on a residential campus just one mile from the shores of the beautiful Monterey Bay.
Founded in 1994 on the former site of Fort Ord by educators and community leaders, CSU Monterey Bay faculty and staff build on that legacy as we explore innovative ways to meet the needs of a new generation of students while simultaneously powering the Monterey County economy.
The campus sits halfway between the Monterey Peninsula, which features the coastal communities of Pacific Grove, Monterey, Seaside, and Carmel, and the Salinas Valley, known as the “Salad Bowl of the World” for its abundant agricultural production. The campus straddles the cities of Seaside and Marina, which are small, diverse communities where many students live and work.

City Conditions

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, tidepools, and the Fort Ord National Monument. In Monterey, the summers are short, comfortable, dry, and mostly clear, and the winters are cold, wet, and partly cloudy. Over the year, the temperature typically varies from 44°F to 68°F and is rarely below 37°F or above 77°F.
