Project Overview

Providing Sacramento State students an environment to simultaneously learn and relax is key to the university’s success. What once housed hundreds of baseball fans will now house thousands of students, with six four-story buildings totaling 365,000 square feet, this project is one of the largest student housing complexes in Northern California, and one of the largest projects for the Sacramento State Campus to date. The 11.5-acre site features 284 apartments, enough to house over 1,000 students and includes amenities such as a swimming pool, café, fitness center and community room. The new facility will be open to the university’s juniors, seniors and graduate students.

The site was once home to the Dan McAuliffe Memorial Ballparks, which have been relocated and redesigned to feature two baseball fields and support facilities.

“This project is so good that the CSU is using it as a roadmap for all future P3s throughout the system,”
– Robert S. Nelsen, President for CSU Sacramento
