College in Chula Vista, Calif., begins construction of student union

Feb. 28, 2023
The $100 million facility at Southwestern College will replace the old student union and cafeteria buildings.

Southwestern College in Chula Vista, Calif., has broken ground on a $100 million student union.

KGTV-TV reports that the 85,000 square-foot space is expected to be completed in winter 2024.

The new space will replace the old student union and cafeteria buildings. It will have a bookstore, learning communities, a veterans resource support center, a meditation room, a ballroom, and more.

The college's master plan says “the new Student Union will complete the heart of campus by offering a range of activities and spaces for students to gather, socialize, and interact with their peers."

Construction funds come from a bond proposal that voters approved in 2016.

The architect is Gensler.
