The Future Home of Meridian Village
As part of CSU’s Master Plan, the site of what once was Aylesworth Hall will be the future Phase I of the next on-campus housing complex, Meridian Village. The Board of Governors has approved $130 million for this first phase, which includes 1,100 beds split across three buildings, a temporary dining and mail facility, the realignment of Meridian Avenue, and renovations of the Braiden Hall parking lot and Ram’s Horn Express and Sports Grill. Phase I is scheduled from April 2020 through May 2022.
The project will be completed in multiple phases over the course of several years. While details of Phase II are not yet finalized, initial planning is for one more building of 200-500 beds to be constructed in the current location of Newsom Hall, and another housing a permanent dining venue, community hub, lounges, front desk services, etc. Phase II is tentatively scheduled to be submitted to the Board of Governors for approval in Fall 2021.
Housing & Dining Services is an auxiliary operation on campus and is completely self-funded with no tuition, student fees, or state funding.
