 Campus Heritage Areas

Since our arrival at Morrow Cove in 1943, the California Maritime Academy has been constantly striving to provide our cadets with the most advanced technology available.

In an effort to preserve the history of the Academy, and to allow us to focus on more modern development, some buildings are kept in their original condition. Due to the unique nature of the Academy, these facilities may exhibit features that are different than current accessibility standards.

While these areas benefit from of modern fire detection, emergency equipment, and seismic upgrades, visitors to "Campus Heritage Areas" may occasionally experience:

  • Uneven or unpaved surfaces
  • Stair-only access to upper levels
  • Traditional door sizing and operation
  • Moderate inclines
  • Remote or general parking

As university improvements continue, affected areas are constantly being addressed and brought up to current standards. During the transitional process, Campus Heritage Areas are exempted from ADA regulations by the following section of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR):

§ 35.151   New construction and alterations.
     (a) Design and construction.
          (1) Each facility or part of a facility constructed by, on behalf of, or for the use of a public entity shall be designed and constructed in such manner that the facility or part of the facility is readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, if the construction was commenced after January 26, 1992.
