In recognition of the Indigenous peoples of San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly proudly named the new residential community, yakʔitʸutʸu, which means “our community” in the yak titʸu titʸu yak tiłhini Northern Chumash language.

Dedicated in honor of Cal Poly’s relationship with the Northern Chumash, this student housing complex features seven residential halls named after yak titʸu titʸu yak tiłhini Northern Chumash sites throughout the Central Coast region.  Together, the university and Indigenous people of San Luis Obispo will serve to educate future generations of Cal Poly students and local residents.

Yakʔitʸutʸu opened fall quarter and houses 1,475 first-year students in seven residence halls.  This new complex is located at the Grand Avenue entrance to campus and is right across the street from the Yosemite and Sierra Madre Residence Halls.

The yakʔitʸutʸu residential community includes a new Welcome Center, an adjacent parking structure, large open spaces for outdoor activities, an amphitheater, a café, community rooms, and ample bike parking. Multiple Residential Learning Communities are housed in yakʔitʸutʸu's seven residence halls, which vary in size from three to five stories and provide double- and quad- occupancy.  With the completion of this new facility, the university now houses nearly 8,000 students on campus.

Reservations required by noon the Monday prior to luncheons
