Cal Poly Pomona is open after a 5.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the campus around 11:42 a.m. on Tuesday, July 29. However, the CLA Building 98 (Tower and Classroom) and the University Library have been closed for the remainder of the day.

Following the earthquake, the university reviewed all campus facilities and deemed them safe. As a precaution, the CLA Building was closed due to some cosmetic damage that was noted after the trembler. A comprehensive evaluation by a seismic specialist found the CLA Building to be structurally sound and safe for use.

Classes held in the CLA Building were cancelled Tuesday, July 29. Finals scheduled in the CLA Building will be rescheduled, and students will receive further information via e-mail. Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.

Administrative offices will reopen and classes will resume in the CLA Building at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, July 30.

Any additional information will be posted on the university home page (, the university hotline (866-869-POLY) and PolyCentric (
