The university, as part of the 23-campus California State University system, offers 136 undergraduate and 60 post-baccalaureate areas of study.

The university's largest and oldest campus is located in the Hayward Hills, with additional campus-sites in the cities of Oakland and Concord. Cal State East Bay is one of only a handful of universities in the California State University system to operate on the quarter system, however it was announced in March 2013 that along with the remaining six quarter system operating CSUs, the campus will be converting to a semester system.
In 2005, with multiple campuses across the region, the university broadened its mission to serve the eastern region of the San Francisco Bay Area. To reflect a more widespread objective, the school changed its name from California State University, Hayward to California State University, East Bay that same year.
