Located just south of Little Lake, Housing 1A/3B, will provide additional undergraduate residential housing to UC Merced.   The building will be delivered in two phases, with the northern phase opening in Fall 2018 and the southern portion opening in 2020.  LEED Gold is the design target.  A permanent name for the building will be selected after it opens.

The residence hall stands four stories tall and edges Little Lake with a pedestrian boardwalk.   Study rooms, lounge spaces, meeting spaces and sheltered bike storage are available within the hall.  Ground floor public spaces include classrooms and student life space connected to the pedestrian circulation network.
