Place: Merrill College Cultural Center

In an effort to further discussion on Student Housing West, UC Santa Cruz will hold two information sessions next week and two public hearings the following week - sessions will provide an overview of the project and additional information learned since release of the draft EIR, including information regarding costs.

As proposed, Student Housing West—spread over two sites, Heller Drive and Hagar Drive—will provide housing for 3, 000 students. Most of the new housing units will support upper division undergraduates and graduate students at the Heller Drive site, though the project will also create new housing for students with families on Hagar Drive as well as a child care center that will serve campus employees and students.

Chancellor Blumenthal and Campus Provost/Ex. Vice Chancellor Tromp announced May 15 that they decided to extend the comment period to 5 p.m., June 27 and hold additional meetings so that the campus can have a more robust discussion on the proposed project and alternatives to the proposed project.
