UC Regents approve UC Santa Cruz plan to increase student housing, expand child care

Recognizing the critical role housing plays in supporting student success, the University of California Board of Regents today reapproved a project that will significantly increase the number of current UC Santa Cruz students who are able to live on campus.

Student Housing West will enable UC Santa Cruz to offer much more housing to its graduate students and upper-division undergraduates by building new housing units with space for more than 3,000 students. The project, spread across two sites, will also allow the campus to expand child-care services.
