California State University, Northridge Starts Construction on New Student Housing

California State University, Northridge (CSUN) in Northridge, Calif., recently began construction on a new student housing complex that will add room for 198 beds to its campus, according to a news release. The project consists of two four-story buildings and will cost an estimated $55.7 million. The new facility is scheduled to open in fall 2025.

The new complex, to be known as Buildings #22 and #23, will cover 60,290 square feet, 30,000 square feet of which will be housing space. The residential floors will consist of dual-occupancy student rooms, one bathroom per four students, and one suite-style living room per floor, the news release reports. Building #22 will feature student community spaces, study rooms, and a multi-purpose room. Building #23 will offer student housing administration space and mail services. Both buildings will feature a central elevator, building services, and secure access.

The university partnered with C.W. Driver Companies for the building’s construction and AC Martin Partners for architecture and design.

“C.W. Driver is ideally suited to help CSUN with this student housing addition,” said C.W. Driver Companies COO Brent Hughes. “In our many years of construction, we’ve worked on several schools and universities, including the Freshman Student Housing, Student Recreation Center, Physical Education Building, and Valley Performing Arts projects on the CSUN campus, providing us extensive campus knowledge and experience necessary for the construction.”
