Room Selection Process for Incoming Students


Cal Maritime is a residential campus- all students are required to live on campus and participate in a meal plan throughout the duration of their education at Cal Maritime. All students residing on campus for Fall 2020 will select their room & meal plan and sign their Housing License Agreement (HLA) via the StarRez application.


The StarRez application will open early Spring semester and can be found on your Cal Maritime Portal page. The roommate selection process will begin during summer for incoming first-year students.


If you need assistance in navigating the StarRez housing application and roommate selection process, please check out the following guides below for more information.
