Construction Updates

CSUDH is Growing!

There are currently three major new construction projects happening on campus -- the Science and Innovation Building, Innovation and Instruction Building, and a new Student Housing building. Each one will play a major role in keeping CSUDH at the forefront of urban universities. This page will be updated often with photos and news about the progress on these exciting additions to the campus.


Science and Innovation Building

The new Science & Innovation Building is a three‐story instructional building located south of the existing Natural Sciences & Mathematics (NSM) building. The new 91,000 GSF facility will house teaching and research laboratory space for Chemistry, Biology, Physics, and CISE (Center for Innovation in STEM Education), including a maker‐space fabrication lab. The building has been situated to create a landscaped courtyard south of the existing NSM building, which will link the two buildings and provide an outdoor space for congregation and collaboration. 

Latest Update (1-15-20): The Science and Innovation Building is 100% complete and within budget. Furniture, fixtures, and equipment will be procured, delivered, and installed during the Spring Semester. The new building is scheduled to be open for Summer Semester 2020.

Innovation and Instruction Building

The Innovation and Instruction Building will be a new four-story structure at the front door of the CSUDH campus, on Victoria Street at the east side of the main campus quad. The building will have approximately 107,600 GSF and 69,250 ASF of space and will be a gateway structure for the campus. It is located on the former site of the one-story cluster of the Small Colleges Complex (SCC), constructed in the early 1970’s, which required abatement and demolition in this project.

Latest Update (1-15-20): The Innovation and Instruction Building is approximately 24% complete and within budget. Current work in progress includes erection of structural steel and installation of metal decking and MEPF inserts. Miscellaneous site work such as grading, irrigation, and placement of concrete around the North Lawn in ongoing. The new building is scheduled to be open for Fall Semester 2021.
