Those staying in corporate housing in San Luis Obispo, CA for business reasons might appreciate some information about the city’s business environment. The city is driven by an economy that is based primarily on services, academics and tourism. The services industry is given rise from the fact that San Luis is the county seat for San Luis Obispo County.

As far as academics is concerned the California Polytechnic State University, and Cuesta College are both located in town and give rise to the largest sector of employment in town.
