Local lodging selections are listed for your convenience in making your alumni weekend reservations. MBA is no longer making arrangements for special rates at ANY location. It has become very complex in recent years and unfortunately we will not be able to do this. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Please contact the hotel numbers listed directly to make your reservations.

Visit the Santa Cruz County Conference and Visitors Council for additional lodging and dining information.

RV Camping
RV camping is no longer allowed on the bluffs as in past years per Santa Cruz County. However, for Alumni Weekend you may bring your RV and park in the Ad Building (west side) parking lot and around the fire station.
  • Must be self-contained (electric, water, sewer)
  • Pets must be leashed and not allowed to roam the campus
  • Take your trash with you or place in an MBA dumpster— not just a campus trash can. Note: Santa Cruz County requires recycling. MBA will be financially penalized if your paper, glass, and plastic items are not separated from actual garbage. Recycle bins can be found all over the campus.
  • No fee for our alumni on this particular weekend.
  • Campus must be quiet by 10pm.
