January 2017 Update
The university has received approval to build four new residences with 2,431 bed spaces for graduate students in Escondido Village. The new buildings will be multi-story, ranging from six to 10 stories, and will house primarily single graduate students or couples without children. Proposed amenities for the project include a market, café/pub, and indoor and outdoor community spaces, in addition to huddle rooms, computer clusters, and messy art spaces.
Initial site preparation work is scheduled to begin January 2017. Activities during this initial phase of construction will include tree removal, utilities work, installation of construction fencing, placement of directional signage around the perimeter of the project area, and building abatement and demolition. Building construction is expected to commence in fall 2017 with completion in 2020 to 2021.
