For the first time since opening, California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) is restricting access to students living on main campus during winter break until the spring semester. There are exceptions, but there are certain requirements needing to be met, such as: being a student attending a winter session, an international student, an athlete in season or a student assistant. Any student can apply for an exception of policy, and the form can be found on the website under Student Housing and Residential Life for winter 2018.
The deadline to fill out the forms and be approved to stay during winter break is fast approaching: Nov. 16 by 5 p.m. There are no additional fees upon approval. CSUMB only grants housing to those approved for part of the winter break. The campus remains closed to all students with the exception of special circumstances from Dec. 24-29, due to construction to main campus.
