Study Abroad: Construction Underway in UC San Diego for 1.1 Billion Project to Build Largest Student Housing 

2 minute read
The University of California, San Diego Campus is about to open its Triton Centre and Ridge Walk North as the largest student accommodation.

The project introduced earlier this year is setting foot in the construction phase. Construction at UC San Diego has started to introduce the new campus housing and union building at the campus in 2025-2026. 


The current project estimates are around 1.1 billion. Ridge Walk North is going to be the new and largest student village in the university with around 2,400 new beds. The university is planning to increase this number to 5,700 by 2026. 

To combat the growing demands for student accommodation, UC San Diego introduced the housing project. As the influx of students is exponentially increasing, such measures for affordable living are important to introduce.  

What Does the Campus Accommodation Project Offer?

The project has two branches, and the Trition Centre is the new and improved student union. It will offer students better mental and physical health benefits. Moreover, a student alumni centre will add icing on the cake. 

Also, an affordable cost of accommodation is the best feature of the offer. As the housing demand is increasing and causing an increase in rental prices, this effort is a great save for the students focussing on affordability. 

The Triton Centre will have 4 buildings and will cost around $428 Million (~INR 35 Billion). Among these buildings, there will also be an art gallery and an event space for 500 people.

Apart from the beds for UG students, the Ridge Walk North will also have administrative and teaching spaces for the School of Global Policy and Strategy, Thurgood Marshall College, and the Department of Economics. 

Additionally, this area will feature 19 classrooms and a dining area as well. Moreover, this village will have 6 residential towers to offer living spaces to its students. Hence, the student village will resemble a small town.

The housing campus will open in 2025 and the student union centre will be ready to open in 2026. These great steps by the university authorities will help in promoting international education tourism.
