Student Housing West Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
Notes: Refer to SCH#2005012113 The proposed project to be analyzed in the project-level EIR includes the construction and occupancy of up to 3,000 new beds of student housing for upper division undergraduate students, graduate students and students with families, including support spaces, amenities and associated infrastructure. The project is envisioned to be constructed in phases with at least 900 beds to be available by July 31, 2020 and the remainder of the project to be completed by July 31, 2022. Implementation of the student housing project may require an amendment to the 2005 LRDP land use map (Exhibit 2). The proposed LRDP amendment will revise the land use designation of less than 5 acres of land on the West Campus for Campus Resource Land (CRL) to Colleges and Student Housing (CSH) compared to the 14 acre land use amendment described in the April 2017 NOP). The proposed project supports the UC system-wide Housing Initiative, which was announced by UC President Janet Napolitano in January 2016. The overarching goals of the housing initiative are two-fold: first, to ensure that each of UC's campuses has sufficient housing for its growing student populace; and second, to keep housing as affordable as possible for UC students.
