There is no place like California's beautiful and mutli-cultural San Francisco Bay Area.  It is arguably the scenic, cultural and entertainment center of the American West.  Students will find exciting places to go and things to do, with the chance to discover all the sights and attractions of two major metropolitan settings-- San Francisco and San Jose/Silicon Valley-- just a 30-40 minute drive away.  Our internships programs also make it possible for students to get on-the-job experience and practical training with companies throughout the Bay Area.


When arriving at Cal State East Bay's main campus in the Hayward Hills, the first thing you will notice is the spectacular view of the entire San Francisco Bay Area.  You’ll also appreciate the green open spaces throughout the 364-acre campus. The Recreation and Wellness Center (RAW) is designed and built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Standard and boasts 54,000 square feet of fitness, recreation, and education space complete with state-of-the-art equipment. The Cal State East Bay University Union is the gathering place for the campus community and its guests. The environment of the Union is conducive to providing a wide range of services and experiences which recognize the cultural and social diversity and promote the potential of our campus family. When completed in 2021, the CORE will become a center for learning, engagement and collaboration located at the heart of Cal State East Bay’s hilltop campus. The CORE’s 21st-century academic library will teach students how to navigate the information age economy and become self-directed learners. The Student Center for Academic Achievement, located on the top floor, will focus on providing the skills needed for student inquiry, development and research. And, its Hub for Entrepreneurship — prominently placed on the ground floor — will provide a nexus for students and faculty to explore innovations that will propel the creative economy into the next generation and beyond.

Residing Options

Though on-campus housing is available, it is limited, and most Cal State East Bay students choose to live off campus and walk or commute to school.  2-4 bedroom apartments are available on campus in Pioneer Heights or University Village.  See on-campus housing for more information. Many students live in off-campus apartments, rented rooms or in shared houses. There are several apartment facilities located within walking distance or accessible to campus by public transit (the university offers a free shuttle bus from campus to nearby BART train stations throughout the day).
