Cal Poly is a nationally ranked, four-year, comprehensive public university located in San Luis Obispo, half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles on California’s Central Coast.

The streaming tour format saves hard drive space on users' devices and avoids the time associated with large downloads, while a downloaded tour can be enjoyed without WIFI or 3G connectivity.
