Cal Poly offers one campus tour and an admissions presentation every weekday (Monday - Friday), except for holidays when the campus is closed. There are no tours offered on Saturdays or Sundays. Tours are led by current Cal Poly students and provide a general overview of the campus and a first-hand student perspective on campus and residential life. Registration is required. Please meet at the information desk in the University Union at the appropriate time.
Cal Poly does not make arrangements for individual or customized campus tours.
If you are bringing a group of 15 or more (including school groups), advance arrangements are required.
Please visit the Cal Poly Admissions Tour website for tour times and online tour registration. A Campus Tour Information Line is available at 805/756-5734.
Self-guided tours are an alternative for visitors unable to visit our campus at the regularly scheduled tour time. Please visit the Cal Poly Admissions Tour website for more information.
Admissions presentations, given by Cal Poly Admissions Counselors, are offered every weekday (Monday - Friday) except for major holidays when the campus is closed.
