San Francisco State Breaks Ground on $179 Million Residence Hall Project

by Katie Sloan

San Francisco — San Francisco State University has broken ground on West Campus Green, a $179 million residence hall project that will offer 750 affordably priced beds, a dining facility and student health center. The university hired design-build team McCarthy Building Cos. and EHDD Architecture for the project, which is expected for delivery in 2024. Plans for the development include a six-story, 120,000-square-foot residence hall for first-year students; and a three-story, 50,000-square-foot building, which will house the new dining facility and Gator Health Center. The residence hall portion of the project will offer 12-room pods with shared bathroom facilities and study lounges. A substantial portion of the project is behind funded by the State of California’s Higher Education Student Housing Grant program, which was established to increase affordable student housing across the state’s three public higher education systems. “With this project, more students will have access to affordable housing, which is critical here in the Bay Area,” says Vice President of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, Jamillah Moore. “That’s because when students have safe, stable and affordable housing, they are more likely to enroll, excel and graduate.”
