It is strongly recommended that you secure housing soon after being admitted to Cal Poly as an international student since there is limited housing available both on- and off-campus.

There are communities within a 15-40 minute commute to San Luis Obispo, including Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Cayucos, Grover Beach, Los Osos, Morro Bay and Pismo Beach, and all provide public transportation to Cal Poly via the RTA bus system.
