Construction & Renovation

The Future Home of Meridian Village

As part of CSU’s Master Plan, Aylesworth and Newsom are proposed to be redeveloped into Meridian Village, a housing project. A program plan to outline design, timeline, and budget for the proposed project is currently in development and will be presented to the Board of Governors for approval in Fall 2019. Once approved by the Board, Housing & Dining Services will go to the bond market to fund the project. Housing & Dining Services is an auxiliary operation on campus and is completely self-funded with no tuition, student fees, or state funding. A timeline for the project will be established and shared at that time.

The project includes multiple phases over the course of several years. Phase one is proposed as the deconstruction and redevelopment of the Aylesworth Hall site, which opened as student housing in the 1950’s and transitioned to office and classroom space in 1970. Environmental remediation began in early March 2019 and deconstruction is slated once remediation is complete. Deconstruction and replacement of Newsom Hall is planned as a future phase, after the Aylesworth redevelopment is complete to ensure the project will have a net gain in beds for each phase.
