Conference Center 3G

Overview

With the 2020 Project, the social heart of UC Merced will shift southward to Little Lake. New mixed-use buildings will engage the Lake and create an active, vibrant place for students, faculty and the community to learn from each other and exchange ideas. 

One of the most prominent facilities edging Little Lake will be the Conference Center. The facility will be comprised of a large ballroom, several large meeting rooms, and multiple seminar rooms intended to serve the campus and the community for a range of activities, such as:

  • Scholarly conferences and seminars

  • Student-focused events

  • Community events

The 2020 Project will be delivered in three phases and the Conference Center is part of the third and final phase which will be complete in Fall 2020.
