A Sneak Peek into Santa Rosa Village

CI held a ground breaking ceremony on Monday, Nov. 24 commencing a 20-month construction phase for Santa Rosa Village, slated for completion by fall 2016. The new Village will provide much needed housing for freshmen starting at CI.

The complex which consists of four-story, 120,000 square foot state-of-the-art structures, is designed to hold 600 students and will contain modern family rooms for a typical pod of 40 students, including resident advisors. Communal spaces will include a large living room, kitchen and laundry facilities, and a large outdoor courtyard, all intended to foster interaction.

The $58 million project is funded through the CSU's System wide Revenue Bond Program and will be repaid with income generated from student housing fees. The project is being constructed by Sundt Construction with Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) as the architect.
