California State University, San Bernardino’s (CSUSB) new $78-million, 152,618-square-foot student housing and dining commons has delivered. Located at 5500 University Parkway, the 407-bed student housing complex and 750-seat dining facility provides much-needed accommodations for incoming students, and supports the university’s future growth.
Totaling 107,260 square feet, the CSUSB student housing complex is split between two buildings, which range in height from two to four stories. The north wing houses the campus honors program and an administrative suite for housing and residential education. The south wing includes amenities such as a game room, multi-purpose rooms, student lounges, laundry room and a community kitchen in addition to the faculty in residence program.
The 45,358-square-foot dining facility features full-service and self-serve stations, and three dining rooms for public or private use.
Pasadena-based C.W. Driver Companies built the facility. The student housing and dining commons are both projected to achieve LEED Gold certification.
