Resources included in tuition

It’s no doubt that attending any college or university can end up costing a pretty penny. However, it’s important that students know that the money for tuition is not only paying for classes, the money is also being used to provide resources for students to take advantage of.  

Cal Poly Pomona offers a plethora of resources available to students. The following are some of the resources including in tuition and are available to students: 

Safety Escort Service  

The Safety Escort Service is available to accompany students and faculty from a classroom to any destination on campus, such as your car parked on campus, any residential hall, university suite or the University Village.   

 There are roughly 125 blue emergency posts throughout campus and off campus, not including the city of Pomona streets such as Temple Avenue. The service is based on “first-come, first-served” in the order of request.  

The Safety Escort Service is available Monday through Thursday after 6 p.m. You can reach the Safety Escort Service at (909) 869-3070. 

Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS) 

SHCS is the health center on campus for students to visit if they are feeling stressed, sick or need support. SHCS has several components throughout campus which include Counseling Services, Health Services and the Wellness Center.  

Counseling Services is located in the Bronco Bookstore Building 66, room 116. The services’ priority includes supporting mental health by providing group therapy sessions, well-being workshops, individual counseling, relaxation training, workshops and mentor programs.  

After-hour and weekend care are not provided by Counseling Services, but emergency assistance phone numbers are provided by SHCS.  

Health Services is located in Building 46, near the M and J parking lots. General doctor appointments and an urgent care center are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

The Wellness Center is located next door to Health Services and is also open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Many of the services require no appointment, such as a blood pressure check, height and weight, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) testing.  

Student Innovation Idea Lab (iLab) 

The Student Innovation Idea Lab can be found inside the Classroom Laboratory and Administration (CLA) Building, 98C, room 6-06.  

Services such as 3D printing, virtual reality and software programming are available to students, faculty and staff. The iLab also provides collaborative spaces, design software and equipment, as well as workshops and events that help to create ideas and turn them into real-life solutions.  

The iLab is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.   

24-Hour Lab  

The 24-Hour Computer Lab is located on the first floor of the library, Building 15. It includes 78 computers and one scanner.  

Printing in the lab requires prepay. You can put money into the Pharos Kiosk which is located just outside the lab.  You may also use Bronco Bucks, a system that allows you to put money onto your Bronco card, if you are not able to access a kiosk. There is no color printing inside the lab.  

You must use your Bronco ID number or card to enter the lab.  

The Cave  

The Cave is another computer lab located inside the Career Center in Building 97, room 121. You can find it underneath the Campus Marketplace, across from the cultural centers. It includes 70 workstations and two printing stations. The Cave is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

The BRIC offers gym equipment, machinery, private instruction and fitness courses students can take during the year.

The Bronco Recreational and Intramural Complex (BRIC) is one of two recreational facilities on campus. The BRIC is located across from Kellogg Gym and the University Suites. 

The BRIC includes an indoor track, basketball courts, a rock climbing wall, studios, weights, etc.  

There are lockers provided on each floor for daily use of the BRIC, but if you plan to visit frequently you can rent a locker for the term at the front desk. 

Membership at the BRIC is included in tuition but there are certain classes and trainings that may require extra fees, such as private sessions and scuba diving certification.   

Fitness Express 

Fitness Express is another recreational facility on campus free for residents of university housing. It is located near the first-year residence halls and on the east side of La Cienega Center.  

Non-resident students are charged a fee for access each term. All members are required a brief orientation on the safe use of the equipment.
