All Cal Poly community members are issued a PolyCard, or campus identification card. Each PolyCard is tied to a Campus Express account, which can be used like a debit card to purchase food, printing and other supplies on campus. If a student has a dining plan, they can use their PolyCard to purchase meals at campus dining locations. A PolyCard also allows students to access resources at Robert E. Kennedy Library and the Health Center. Students, faculty and staff can ride SLO transit for free by showing their PolyCard.
