Document Description
The proposed project consists of updates to the Biola University Master Plan. These updates include increasing enrollment from the currently allowed maximum enrollment of 5,000 fulltime equivalent students (FTES) to a maximum allowed enrollment of 6,800 FTES, and increasing the total square footage of campus buildings by about 30% over the present PUD limits. Biola University proposes to demolish 25 existing campus buildings and construct 16 new buildings and three parking structures. New buildings would vary in height up to several stories. The occupiable gross square footage of campus would increase by approximately 30 percent compared to PUD #50, from 1.5 million to 1.9 million square feet. Under the project, these activities would be carrieg out over a 20-year time frame, through 2031.
