Game Changer: CSU Schools Move Forward With Critical Student Housing

The California State University board of trustees voted Wednesday to approve student housing projects at CSU Dominguez Hills, Cal Poly Humboldt, and San Francisco State. The vote comes amid an affordable housing crisis that leaves 10% of Cal State students homeless in any given year. 

The projects will be partly financed through a $492.5 million grant approved by the Legislature last year. 

SFSU’s new West Campus Green Student Housing and Health Center will include a 120,000-square-foot, six-story dormitory that can accommodate 750 students. Total cost: $179 million.

The CSU Dominguez Hills project will house 365 students at a total cost of $104.5 million.

At Cal Poly Humboldt, a 303,000-square-foot housing complex will be built near Highway 101. It will hold 964 beds. Total cost: up to $215 million.
