Welcome New Mustangs!

SLO Days

Students and supporters who plan on driving to campus need a parking pass in order to leave their vehicles parked for the duration of SLO Days. Guests parking on campus can park in R-3 and R-4 parking structures. For more information please visit SLO Days Parking.


Mustang Move-In Pass

All students must have a Mustang Move-in Pass for fall move-in. The pass is secured by signing up for a required move-in arrival date and time starting Thursday, July 20 for vehicle unloading, check-in and long-term parking.

The move-in dates for new students, continuing students and early start program participants can be found on the Housing Move in page.


Resident Parking as First Time Freshman

Cal Poly residential students are not permitted to bring vehicles to campus for the duration of their freshman year (fall through spring quarters). This includes students who have enough credits to be considered sophomores at any time during their first academic year at Cal Poly.

A limited number of spaces have been allocated to accommodate freshman residents who demonstrate a compelling need or who would suffer undue hardship under the Freshman Parking Policy. Students can access the exception application at Resident Student Parking beginning August 7.
