Building a Better Dining Experience

Vista Grande Dining Complex

In 2016 shovels broke ground on a state-of-the-art dining complex as Cal Poly Corporation's master plan for Campus Dining got underway. The Vista Grande replacement project was conceived to address the needs of a growing residential campus and expand on-trend dining options. It was developed based on research and analysis of the latest culinary concepts and campus community input. The new three-story complex will include six unique dining venues, increased indoor and outdoor seating, lounge space, game tables and a variety of exhibition-style food choices. A Jamba Juice, convenience store and Campus Dining's registered dietitian will be featured prominently on the first floor. All of these amenities will be housed in a modern building that boasts LEED silver certification for sustainable, resource-efficient design. Campus Dining plans to open the Vista Grande Dining Complex in the summer of 2020.

The new Vista Grande Dining Complex is the most ambitious project we have undertaken in many years. This state-of-the-art facility is a key component of the dining master plan that we launched in 2014 with the overarching goal of transforming the Cal Poly dining experience. Designed for diverse food options and expanded gathering spaces, the new Vista Grande will provide an enhanced sense of community and campus spirit. The Cal Poly Corporation is proud to be involved in a project that, at its core, is all about driving student success.
