About California State University - East Bay

Cal State East Bay has come a long way in the last 60 years — it’s had five presidents, gone by five different names and produced thousands of graduates who have entered the region’s workforce.

The university was originally named the State College for Alameda County when it was officially established by the California State Assembly in 1957. The first academic year began in 1959 at Sunset High School in Cherryland with 25 faculty and 293 students. Groundbreaking ceremonies for the current Hayward Campus were held in February 1961 and the college moved to its permanent location in Fall 1963. 

The university changed its name to California State University, East Bay in 2005 to reflect its new regional positioning. The university’s three campuses — named the Hayward campus, the Concord campus and the Oakland Center — reinforced the regional influence of the university.

California State University, East Bay is known for award winning programs, expert instruction, small classes, a highly personalized learning environment—and a choice of more than 100 career-focused fields of study. With two scenic campuses plus a professional center in dynamic downtown Oakland, Cal State East Bay is where all your possibilities come into view.

Cal State East Bay welcomes and supports a diverse student body with academically rich, culturally relevant learning experiences which prepare students to apply their education to meaningful lifework, and to be socially responsible contributors to society. Through its educational programs and activities, the university strives to meet the educational needs and to contribute to the vitality of the East Bay, the state, the nation, and global communities.
