COVID-19 and Campus Housing
Updated Aug. 30, 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
