Verano 8 Graduate Student Housing and LRDP Student Housing Amendment
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Project Applicant
University of California, Irvine
Present Land Use
UC Irvine is not subject to local zoning. The 2007 UCI LRDP land use designation allows for student housing.

Document Description
The proposed project would demolish the existing 6,000 GSF maintenance and operations facility and Lot 27 to construct approximately 1,200 graduate student beds in the existing Verano Place graduate student housing complex. The student beds and new community center would be housed in approximately four apartment buildings. An approximately 1,000-space parking structure with an attached replacement maintenance and operations facility would be constructed in support of the residential facilities. UCI is also proposing to amend its 2007 LRDP. The Amendment would increase the on-campus student housing capacity to a total of 22,000 beds, and change the land use designations of a six-acre parcel in the Academic Core and a 12-acre parcel in the West Campus.
