Campus Express

The Smart Way to Shop on Campus.

When you join Cal Poly as a student, faculty member, or staff employee, you are automatically set up with an account. All value added to your account is stored on your PolyCard (campus ID) and can be used to purchase food, clothing, printing, supplies, and more on campus.

Account Benefits


You only need one card to shop on campus


It's easier than using cash or credit cards


Adding value online is quick and easy


Security features are in place for your protection


Campus Express dollars carry over year to year until you leave campus


Perfect for busy students

Campus Express is the perfect tool for new students learning to live on a budget. It's a great way for parents to allocate funds and allowances to purchase books, school supplies, toiletries, snacks, and other things sold on campus. Additionally, students can use Campus Express to purchase books on the University Store's website by entering the ISO number (no dashes) from the back of their PolyCard at checkout.

The program is set up as a declining account. There is no minimum or maximum amount.
