San Diego State University is experiencing record enrollment growth. With this increase, comes an ever-increasing demand for on-campus student housing, especially for first-year students. South Campus Plaza was built in response to this need. The $142 million project consists of mixed-usage on 3.57 acres of university-owned land on the periphery of the campus of San Diego State University near the corners of College Avenue and Montezuma Road. The student housing project includes a ground floor mixed-use commercial component with upper floor student housing, a structured parking facility with one basement level below grade, one acre of campus green, public promenades, and pedestrian malls.
