Building a Better Dining Experience. Vista Grande Dining Complex.

Cal Poly Corporation’s master plan for Campus Dining is officially underway. The 43-year-old Vista Grande dining facility closed in 2016, making room for the development of a new state-of-the-art dining complex. To address the growing needs of the campus and provide for on-trend dining options, the new complex was conceived on research and analysis of the latest culinary concepts and campus community input. The new three-story dining complex will feature six micro-restaurants with exhibition-style cooking as well as increased seating and lounge space. All of this will be encompassed in a modern building that boasts LEED certification for sustainable, resource-efficient design. With an expected completion time of about two years and a cost of approximately $30 million, Campus Dining plans to open the new Vista Grande Dining Complex in 2019.
