Plans for the development of a new student centre and 2,400-bed residence hall on the campus of the University of California, San Diego, have been approved by the University of California Board of Regents. According to reports by the San Diego Union-Tribune, the estimated cost of these two projects is said to be around $1.1 billion for development. 

The student centre under development is set to be a four-building establishment titled Triton Centre and is to be completed in 2026. Of the four buildings, one is set to house the university’s student health, mental health, and well-being services. Additionally, the property will include a space for urgent care, primary care, pharmacy services, and wellness services, as well as a new home for the Counselling and Psychological Services department at the university. 

Other services and departments to be featured at Triton Centre include an alumni and welcome centre, a multi-purpose building with a 500-person event space, an art gallery, and a student academic resources building. This academic resources building is basically an expansion of the university’s pre-existing Teaching + Learning Commons program with additional facilities for transfer students' success hub, global initiatives, and campus support and administration.

Additional announcements included those for the future development plans for the Ridge Walk North Living and Learning Neighbourhood, which is a residence hall project that is set to open in the fall of 2025. Around 2,400 beds are to be offered by the community for undergraduate students. Moreover, the building is set to include an updated administrative and teaching space for the university’s Thurgood Marshall College, the School of Global Policy and Strategy, and the Department of Economics in the School of Social Sciences. 

19 new classrooms, a 150-seat lecture hall, study lounges, a co-working space, dining and wellness programming, and outdoor gathering areas are all expected to be included in Ridge Walk. A glass-blowing craft studio, which will be open to the public, is also set to be featured in this project.
