The California State University Board of Trustees has given the go-ahead for Sacramento State to begin construction on a new residence hall and a Recreation and Wellness Center.

The Student Housing project will be the first step toward providing new on-campus housing for students. Construction on the $55 million project is scheduled to begin in July 2007 and be completed by July 2009. The four-story, 209,000 square-foot building will have 600 beds in apartment-style suites. Each housing unit will have either two double occupancy bedrooms (four people total) or five individual bedrooms (five people total). The suites will have two bathrooms, a kitchen and living room area.

Each floor of the resident hall will have shared study areas and community lounges. The facility will provide a mail room, laundry areas, a conference area, tutoring space and retail areas. The first apartment building will be built on the site of Foley Hall, which is scheduled for demolition in July.

Construction on the Recreation and Wellness Center will begin in March 2008 and is expected to be completed in June 2010. The $71 million, 150,000 square-foot facility will be located at the north end of Hornet Stadium. The Center will offer a host of cutting-edge fitness, recreation and athletic opportunities. Planned features include a fitness center, indoor track, multi-purpose sport courts and a rock-climbing wall. It will also provide a full-service student health center.

Details about the Recreation and Wellness Center are available at
