Caltrans Kellogg Drive On-Ramp Closure

Caltrans is closing the Kellogg Drive on-ramp to the westbound San Bernardino Freeway (I-10) for 45 days starting at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20. The unanticipated closure stems from additional construction and safety testing associated with the San Bernardino (I-10) High Occupancy Vehicle Lane Project

University Police and traffic control officers will divert traffic along Kellogg Drive to East Campus Drive. Officers will be stationed at high-traffic intersections during peak hours. Both the westbound and eastbound off-ramps from I-10 to Kellogg Drive remain open. The closure will affect traffic leaving campus.

Residential Mail

What's My Address?

Please review the instructions on how your mailing address must be formatted and pass this information on to your friends, family, businesses, etc. Adding any extra information to your address will delay or prevent mail from being delivered to you. Please visit: Housing Mail & Package Information

Expecting a Package?

Delivery carriers are not allowed to go into buildings or to leave packages outside, all packages must go through the Cal Poly Distribution Center. Even though you may have received a delivery confirmation from your carrier, it may have arrived at Cal Poly or the local post office, but it has yet to arrive at University Housing Services. As you place orders for classes or upcoming holidays, please remember there is a longer delivery time for items to arrive and be processed through our office. Please plan and place online orders with that extended timeline in mind, and we will make every effort that you receive your orders as soon as possible. 

University Housing Services will sign for your packages and send you an email to your Cal Poly Pomona email address when your package has been received by the Housing Office. Please wait to receive an email from Housing Services that your package is ready.
