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 is scheduled to close for renovation summer 2023, with the opening of the renovated building slated for fall 2025.

Your New Study Connection

There will be one temporary structure for student study in parking lot C7 at the corner of California Boulevard and North Perimeter Road, located not far from the library. Chandler and San Luis Lounges in the University Union will also serve as designated student study spaces.

A second location for another temporary student study structure is in progress, with the location to be announced soon.
