Construction on a new four-story residence hall north of the Calaveras River on the Stockton Campus could start as early as Monday, pending final approval from the Board of Regents on Friday. It is the first new residential construction project at University of the Pacific since Monagan and Chan Family halls were completed in 2002.

Geared to upper division and graduate and professional students, the new hall is expected to open in spring of 2018. The 381-bed complex will eventually house about 200 additional beds, as Pacific's long-term housing plan calls for reducing the number of beds in some of the older existing housing facilities. The project is part of a multi-phase master plan to enhance, renovate and repurpose student housing at Pacific.

"This new facility highlights the new normal for housing at Pacific," said Torry Brouillard-Bruce, executive director of residential life and housing. "In addition to providing a comfortable living space, the rest of the building will include amenities and spaces to support student success, socially and academically."

The new residence hall will provide contemporary apartment-style housing with gathering spaces and other indoor and outdoor amenities for students such as a larger communal kitchen, community spaces to help students connect and engage and study spaces to support their academic needs.

Ground preparation was started earlier this year on the site of the new hall, located in the area of the Hal Nelson Tennis Courts. The footprint will lie between the Theta Chi fraternity house and the Support Services building, and will extend slightly into the adjacent recreation field (see below). New tennis courts were recently constructed at the new Eve Zimmerman Tennis Center.

The university is working with Birmingham, Alabama-based Capstone Development Partners, which is known for building student housing to support the student experience. Capstone will directly oversee the construction of the project. The design firm is Mogavero Architects of Sacramento and the contractor will be Sundt Construction of Sacramento, an experienced builder of student housing.
