Office of Residence Life Welcome

We are excited for you to attend Cal Maritime and look forward to helping you on your path to being a well-rounded leader ready to take the next steps in your future.

The first-year college experience is an exciting time in a young adult's life. It's the stepping-stone for everything that happens next. There is a lot for students to take in: learning the ins and outs of college life, making new friends, learning how to function within the Corps of Cadets, navigating the classroom and a rigorous academic curriculum, and thinking about the future. It can be very intimidating. 

The Office of Residence Life is here to support you along the way to provide resources and opportunities within your residential environment for an engaging cadet experience here on campus!

Fall 2022 Move-in Day is Sunday, August 21st, 2022 and we look forward to your arrival on campus!

As a reminder, the StarRez housing portal and application is now open. Please don’t forget to complete your housing application!

If you have any questions, please let us know! We can be reached at housing@csum.edu
