COVID-19 and Campus Housing

Updated April 25, 2022

Campus Coronavirus Info and Guidance 

Cal Poly is actively monitoring the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19). The University's Coronavirus webpage is the campus hub for updates and advisories. 

Housing Policies 

Guest Policy 

As of spring quarter, guests are permitted to visit campus housing. Students can register guests in their Housing Portal on MyCalPoly or at the front desk for their community.   

Face Coverings 

Face coverings are no longer required on campus, except in health care setting including our Heath Center and COVID-19 testing site, where they are required regardless of vaccination status.

Isolation and Quarantine Housing 

If you are placed in isolation or quarantine housing, you are not permitted to leave your assigned room/space unless approved by a medical director. For more guidelines on isolation, quarantine, and quarantine in place, please visit the Student Quarantine and Isolation Guide or email

Room changes

Room changes have resumed as of spring quarter.  

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.
