More Space for More Students

Nov. 15, 2013

Over the next two years, Cal State Fullerton’s 37-year-old student center will undergo a major facelift. The university recently was given the thumbs for an expansion of the Titan Student Union, a building that hasn’t been updated in 21 years.

The California State University Board of Trustees approved the $20 million project to be funded by existing cash reserves of the student center and by the university’s Associated Students, Inc.

The student center was built in 1976 with 70,000 square feet to support a student population of 21,500. There was a subsequent expansion in 1992 when the population was about 24,400.

Now, with CSUF’s student population at 38,325, it’s time for an overhaul, said Titan Student Centers Director Kurt Borsting.

“This project will expand this important university facility – currently 140,000 square feet – and also will include renovation of existing space, primarily on the second floor, to address space and service needs,” Borsting said in a written statement.
