This project includes demolition of the current Administration Building and construction of a new building on the existing site. Completion is estimated by the end of 2019. Offices for the president; vice president, academic affairs; vice president, administrative services; vice president, student services; and vice president, human resources will be located in this building, as well as the offices for Institutional Research, the Foundation, and Marketing & Communications.
Student Services Building
The new Student Services Building will be strategically located to create a “front door” to campus along Manhattan Beach Boulevard. All student services will be centralized in this modern $40.4 million building, making it easier for students and first-time visitors to access information and services. A new entry drive and main drop-off to the campus will be developed as part of this project, along with a new surface parking lot. This comprehensive facility will replace the existing Student Services Center, built in the 1940s.
The new gymnasium facility will house two full instructional and athletic competition areas for basketball, volleyball, and badminton. A multipurpose fitness facility, team locker rooms, faculty offices and other essential support spaces are also part of the plan. The $35 million project will replace both the North and South gyms with updated facilities, featuring seating for 1,241 in one area and 654 in the second area.
