The Gutswurrak (pronounced "guts-wuh-dock") Student Activities Center is the heart of campus life. A place where you can find helpful services, connect with friends, engage in a variety of activities, and participate in exciting events. We welcome all members of the campus community in an inclusive environment and through our many spaces and services, provide a central gathering place for out of classroom experiences. Gutswurrak is the Wiyot word for “gathering place."

We acknowledge that the land on which Cal Poly Humboldt is located is unceded territory of the Wiyot people who continue to live and thrive today. It is surrounded by the traditional, ancestral, and present homelands of several indigenous nations including the Hupa, Karuk, Mattole, Tolowa, Wailaki, and Yurok that make up Humboldt County.
