Cal Poly Pomona Official Campus Tours


Cal Poly Pomona Official
Prospective Student Tours

Last year over 12,000 prospective students and their families came to Cal Poly Pomona and joined a campus tour. The walking-tour is led by a knowledgeable Outreach Ambassador who is a current Cal Poly Pomona college student.

Our team of Outreach Ambassadors are just as diverse as the school itself with students in varying majors, interests and social dynamics. All Outreach Ambassadors maintain high GPAs within their college academics, are involved in clubs and organizations throughout the university, participate in an extensive tour training program, and are official representatives of Cal Poly Pomona.

What's in an Official Tour?

     Welcome Presentation

At the start of your visit a Cal Poly Pomona professional staff representative from the Office of Outreach, Recruitment & Educational Partnerships will greet your group and lead a 15-minute group presentation to discuss: admissions requirements, deadlines, tuition, majors and next steps.

     Walking Tour

The Campus tour is approximately a 90-minute walk through the main areas on campus. Unfortunately, with over 1,700 acres here at Cal Poly Pomona, our tour route cannot accommodate visiting the entire campus because you'd need more than a day to see it all! Discover:
  • The Power of Polytechnic
  • An Affordable, Quality Education at a Great Location
  • Get Connected to Campus Life
  • Diversity
  • Learn By Doing Education that Prepares You for Your Career
  • Heritage
  • Student Centered Philosophy
  • ADA Accommodations: Please call 909.869.3529 at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled tour time to request ADA accommodations.

     Student Housing

Living on campus has many benefits. Studies show that students who live on campus experience unparalleled growth in social and cultural development, civic engagement, and leadership skills. Included with your campus tour is a tour of the Freshmen Resident Halls and the student showroom. Your guide will not only explain the residence options available to student, but will also discuss meal plans as it relates to room and board.


Your tour concludes back at the CLA Building where the tour began. From here you're welcome to continue your visit by exploring the campus on your own.
