The University provides a beautiful and secure setting with a spectacular panoramic view of the San Francisco Bay area. From CSU East Bay students can reach San Francisco, Berkeley, or Silicon Valley within 30-45 minutes. Cal State East Bay has a diverse student population of 13,000 students, with approximately 1100 international students. While most students commute to campus, approximately 1200 students live in on-campus housing, and many more in nearby apartment complexes. CSU East Bay is a distinctly student-centered campus, and most classes are smaller than 30 students. The most popular majors for NSE students include art, communications, international studies, political science, and psychology.

Campus Location - Campus is located on a large hill overlooking Hayward and the San Francisco Bay Area. Buses link campus to downtown Hayward where students can use BART to travel to further Bay Area destinations.

Helpful Information - CSU East Bay runs on a quarter system, with the academic year beginning in late September, and running until mid-June. Students who are not accustomed to the quarter system are advised to not overload their schedule during the first quarter, until they adjust to the academic pace.
