Construction is nearly complete on a new building to house student services and administrators on MiraCosta College's San Elijo campus in Cardiff, Calif.

The Times of San Diego reports that the 10,770-square-foot Student Services and Administration Building has been designed as a new gateway to the campus. The $12.4 million building will serve as a single location for a variety of key student services, including admissions, financial aid and counseling.

Construction is expected to be done by the end of the year.

The facility is one of several capital improvement projects underway that are being funded by Measure MM, a $455 million bond package approved by voters in 2016.

The MiraCosta Community College District is taking advantage of the time that students are getting instruction via distance learning to finish up construction projects at two other campuses as well.

”Given what we are learning about indoor health and safety from the coronavirus pandemic, the design focus on improving the indoor air quality as an important health and wellness component for our students and instructors is even more important than ever before,” says Tim Flood, vice president of student services.

The district’s Community Learning Center campus is also getting a new student services building. The $12.3 million facility adds space for office, library and instructional media spaces, includes an events terrace, upgrades to the quad, parking lot renovations and an additional parking lot. The district said construction is 60 percent complete.

On the Oceanside campus, the athletic field is undergoing a major renovation that includes a new field house, soccer field, pedestrian ramp, ADA-compliant restrooms and a native species garden. The $10 million project is expected to be finished in November.
