About the Project

​The $142 million, 370,000-GSF Nuevo West Graduate Student Housing project consists of a minimum of 804 beds, 32,000 GSF of common amenity space to serve the housing population, a minimum 1,200 space multi-floor above-ground concrete parking structure which will serve both the Housing population and the Healthcare Campus staff population, and a 28,000-GSF UC San Diego Family House for temporary housing of patients and families being served by the UC San Diego Health System.

The new graduate student housing at Nuevo West creates a new campus heart on the East Mesa that is a keystone in the future campus master plan for graduate student housing. Nuevo West also provides a rich composition of social and academic amenity spaces that serve this growing East Campus population. This design also accommodates temporary housing and community program space for medical center patients and families undergoing treatments at UC San Diego. This symbiotic program relationship is reflected in a facility that provides shared community amenities as well as buffered spaces specific to each program use. The grand opening of the new student housing at Nuevo West is anticipated in 2019.
