The Embassy English study centre is located in the heart of Cal Poly’s campus. It is an intimate setting with a family feel, and also includes interactive white boards in every classroom, maintaining the high-tech standard that Embassy is known for.

The centre is less than a five-minute walk to the campus food court, bookstore and student centre – the main hub of student life. Embassy Cal Poly is also in close proximity to the beautiful recreation centre: a 21,000 square foot cardio and weight space, with fitness studios, an indoor track, outdoor volleyball courts, indoor racquetball courts, and a lap and leisure pool.

Cal Poly is located in the city of San Luis Obispo which is halfway between California’s two greatest cities, San Francisco and Los Angeles. San Luis Obispo offers a peaceful, safe and welcoming community where students can focus on their studies and feel at home. But please don’t refer to it by its full name; its local nickname is SLO, as in “easy-going” and “relaxed.”

SLO is known as the “happiest place in America” and boasts 315 days of sunshine a year. The area offers beaches, sunning and surfing, wineries, bike trails and mountain hikes.

Embassy Cal Poly is within access to Morro Bay and its population of Elephant Seals on the coast, the historical landmark Hearst Castle built by one of America’s wealthiest and most influential families to the east, and farther north is Silicon Valley, the heart of global technological innovation and entrepreneurship.

The city itself has great cafes, bars, restaurants, and a lively farmer’s market where the whole town comes out every week for an evening stroll, to shop for arts and crafts, and to rekindle friendships.
