2020-21 Winter Break Housing

The last day of in-person fall classes is Friday, Nov. 20. After, Cal Poly transitions to virtual instruction for the remainder of fall term. To eliminate travel back and forth from your home residence to campus, University Housing will observe an extended Winter Break, from Nov. 21-Jan.3.

Housing communities will be closed for the duration of the break. Dining venues will be closed or at very limited capacity starting Nov. 22.

Limited Winter Break housing is available upon approved request.

There are only two housing options for Winter Break:

· Nov. 21-Dec. 7 - $735 (Students remain in their fall assignment)

· Nov. 21-Jan. 3 - $1,976 (Students will move to Winter Break housing in Cerro Vista)

Please complete this form by Monday, Nov. 9 if you are interested in Winter Break housing.  Your request will be reviewed, and a determination will be sent to your Cal Poly email within 7 business days:
