Construction

project rendering

The Living and Learning Neighborhood, set to break ground in June 2018, will be a vibrant, mixed-use community on the west campus. In addition to housing and academic space, the dynamic neighborhood will provide new dining options as well as service and convenience retail that will enhance the student experience and minimize the need for students to travel off-campus.

UC San Diego has brought together Clark Construction Group – California, HKS Architects and Safdie Rabines Architects to deliver this exciting new community.
