The Merced 2020 Project will add 1.2 million gross square feet of new academic, housing, and student life facilities to the University of California, Merced. The ultimate result will be a vibrant and sustainable campus that will enable academic distinction, enhance student life and expand access to the University.
The $1.3 billion project includes three new teaching and research lab buildings, 1,700 new beds of on-campus housing, dedicated space for student life and clubs, 1,500 new parking spaces, a student wellness center, a new entrance to campus and transit hub that will improve campus circulation, new dining options, an expansion of the childhood education center, a conference center for community and campus events, NCAA-II class outdoor athletic and recreation fields and a pool. It will be complete in three phases between Fall 2018 and Fall 2020.
