Construction Updates

What's happening on the construction site right now 

UC Merced's campus expansion is underway. As construction unfolds, we understand some of the activity may impact you, as well as cause inconvenience. We greatly appreciate your patience as we do our best to accommodate the campus community during the construction period.

April 2017

  • Reinforced Steel (“Rebar”) for the first housing project is underway, as well as concrete pouring 
  • Excavation for the new Multipurpose Dining Facility and Academic Walk's below grade infrastructure.  
  • The campus’ project team, its construction inspectors as well as the developer’s team relocation to a set of trailers on the construction site

 

The Project will be completed in three phases

Construction began in Fall 2016. The anticipated schedule is for the first facilities to open in three annual phases beginning in Fall 2018.  In total, 13 new buildings as well as supporting infrastructure will be added to the campus.  We understand that this construction activity will impact you, as well as cause inconvenience. We greatly appreciate your patience as we do our best to accommodate the needs of the campus community during the construction period.
