COVID-19 and Campus Housing

Updated Jan. 11, 2023

Campus Coronavirus Info and Guidance 

The University's Roadmap webpage is the current campus resource for updates and advisories. 

Winter Quarter Updates: Students are no longer required to complete the daily self-screener to obtain a campus pass. The self-screener remains a tool for all students to monitor their health, and students are strongly encouraged to report a positive test. Students with symptoms can continue to seek medical care at Campus Health and Wellbeing. Free masks continue to be available on campus.

Housing Policies 

Guest Policy 

Guests are permitted to visit residents of campus housing. Students can register guests in their Housing Portal on MyCalPoly or at the front desk for their community. A photo ID is required for guests who stay overnight.

Face Coverings 

Face coverings are not required on campus, except in health care settings where they are required regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings are encouraged in campus housing. If someone is wearing a face covering, please consider putting one on during your interaction and be respectful of their personal space.

Isolation in Place

Students who test positive for COVID-19 can isolate in their housing space. For more guidelines on isolation in place, please visit the Student Quarantine and Isolation Guide or email

Custodial Service

Custodians are not accessing individual campus apartments to clean common spaces. Cleanings are scheduled for breaks where possible and based on current conditions/guidance. If we do need to access a room or apartment to clean for any reason, residents of space will be notified. 


Students can report maintenance items through Service Requester on their Housing Portal. If you are isolating, maintenance requests that are life safety or "urgent" will be addressed first to limit contact.

Community signs  

The signs around campus are important to inform and direct residents and staff — especially in the event of an emergency. Community signs that go missing or are damaged may result in charges for individuals or the whole floor/community, as outlined in your housing contract.
