Student accommodations are provided through a cooperative agreement between CMB and Holiday Inn Express, Ventura. Conveniently located in Ventura Harbor, the hotel is within a short walking distance from CMB along the scenic harbor promenade. Same gender student roommates will share suites for the duration of their program session. A teaching assistant will provide on-site supervision during evening hours to address student needs and ensure compliance with CMB’s room policies and curfews.

Through the generous support of local restaurant owners in Ventura Harbor, CMB is also able to offer our students a limited menu meal plan that includes a variety of cuisines. Participating restaurants provide take-out options or patio seating with harbor views. CMB will gladly accommodate students with specific dietary restrictions.

Leisure Activities

Although the CMB experience is fast-paced and challenging, students will have ample time to forge new and lasting friendships, enjoy spectacular California sunrises and sunsets, and take in some of the harbor attractions, including Surfer's Knoll Beach and the Channel Islands National Park Headquarters/Robert J. Lagomarsino Visitor Center. CMB strives to build memories that will last a lifetime!
