A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

Cal Poly is the second largest land-holding university in California, second only to UC Berkeley, and one of the largest land-holding universities in the nation. Cal Poly uses all of its land holdings in active support of the education of its students. Nestled between downtown San Luis Obispo and the foothills, on either side of Brizzolara Creek as it falls toward the Pacific Ocean, the Cal Poly main campus is 1,321 gently rolling, sun- and shade-splashed acres. Within that, the 155-acre, compact and pedestrian-friendly core campus includes:
-Main academic facilities for all colleges
-The Robert E. Kennedy Library
-Recreation facilities
-Central dining complex
-University Union
-Spanos Stadium
-Performing Arts Center
-Most residence halls, including those associated with Living/Learning Communities.
Additional main campus facilities—Poly Canyon and its village apartments, athletic facilities, hiking trails, and agricultural units such as the Equine Center and the Leaning Pine Arboretum—flow into the surrounding 1,000 acres.
