San Luis Obispo and the California Polytechnic State University
iLRN 2023 sessions will be held on the campus of California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly), in the city of San Luis Obispo (SLO), California. San Luis Obispo, where Cal Poly is located, is about halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on the California Coast.
Major US Highway 101 and State Highway 1 run through it. It is about a 10 minute drive from the coast and beaches such as Pismo Beach, Grover Beach and Morro Bay.
SLO, as it's called by its residents, is within 3 hours from both San Jose and Los Angeles, probably closer to 3.5 hours from SF airport. It has an active regional airport with connecting flights to San Francisco, LAX, Phoenix, Denver and Seattle.
Destinations within town (like Cal Poly, Airport, Train station, downtown, all hotels) are no more than a 10 minute drive away from each other, and much can be accessed by foot with pavements and low kerbs for wheelchairs.
