Parking Lot Closures

Campus Traffic and Parking Impacts

Nearly a dozen construction projects will be underway on campus to help enhance university life in support of the Cal Poly Master Plan.

To help faculty, staff and students navigate and plan, the most up to date information on the projects and corresponding parking lot closures and traffic impacts is listed below. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to better Cal Poly.
