Temporary Locations for Kennedy Library Transformation Project

Cal Poly is excited to build new connections with the library transformation project. Students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to connect in new temporary locations during renovation and, when the renovation is complete, interact in an environment that will transform their library experience. The building closed on June 16, 2023 for a planned 2-year renovation, and will reopen in Fall 2025.

Your New Study Connection

Cal Poly has opened temporary study locations to minimize impact to students while the building remains closed. So you can know before you go, you can use the Waitz App to see real-time occupancy for the alternate study spaces. Waitz can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Students will continue to have access to the full range of library resources at these locations.
