Located in the northeast portion of campus, the new structure will include student services like admissions and records, counseling, financial aid, student life and leadership, health center, bookstore and the cafeteria. The college plans to start construction in late April with a completion date of Fall 2017.
San Luis Obispo Campus Instructional Building will be a 32,000 square foot, two-story structure that will house eight high-capacity, multi-discipline classrooms on the ground level, capable of serving up to 45 students each.
