MiraCosta Community College District Begins Design of New Student Services and Administration Building at San Elijo Campus

The San Elijo Campus of the MiraCosta Community College District (MCCCD) is about to get a new look. Design work has started for a new Student Services and Administration Building that will provide a new gateway for the campus. Funding for the project is provided by Measure MM, the $455 million bond measure approved by district voters in November 2016.

The new building will replace the existing Administration Building and consolidate student service operations into a one-stop shop. The new building will provide administrative offices and meeting spaces that will allow staff to properly serve the student body. It will also address the identified space deficits and provide a new identity to the campus, improving wayfinding and the student experience. 

Preliminary programming and space planning for the building includes an office size of 4,550 assignable square feet to include Admissions & Records, Cashier, Financial Aid, Counseling, Testing, and Administration/Instructional Services. The new facility will also include a new bookstore, multi-purpose room, and a variety of meeting spaces.

"The Student Services and Administration Building is the only new structure in the district's Facility Master Plan for the San Elijo Campus," said Tom Macias, MCCCD’s Director of Facilities. "It will be designed with the intent that the other buildings on campus would be renovated or modernized to meet most of the current and future needs of the campus."

Design is currently underway. Construction is planned to start in August 2019 and be completed by July 2020.

Measure MM is a $455 million general obligation (GO) bond approved by voters in 2016 to modernize aging facilities and upgrade instructional technology. Learn more at Measure MM
