Construction Updates

Construction of Cal State LA’s first traditional-style student housing facility, located next to our existing student apartments, is officially underway. Student Housing East will offer 1,500 beds for freshmen and sophomores, a dining commons and a learning center.

The project is scheduled to open in fall 2021. Regular construction updates will be posted on this page. Visit to stay in the know, view photos of our progress or report any construction-related issues.
