CSULB’s current capital plan includes three phases of activity involving the PH 1 and PH 2 buildings. Due to budget uncertainties, all timelines are probable rather than firm.
PH 1 and 2 will be used primarily as surge space for occupants moved from the Liberal Arts Buildings (LA) corridor to facilitate seismic and other upgrades to LA 2-4. A few programs and one academic department will relocate permanently to the PH buildings in this phase as well. The budget for cosmetic repairs in both PH 1 and 2 does not allow for any repairs or demolition in spaces not used for this surge plan.
With LA upgrades complete, surge occupants will move back to LA locations and longer-term occupants, primarily from the College of Liberal Arts will be relocated into the PH buildings.
The campus hopes to demolish one or both of the PH buildings or undertake a complete remodel project. At this time, funding appears to be well into the future.
Based on staff recommendations, the Office of the Provost has assigned space which can be seen on the PH 1 Floor Plan. This assignment is for Phase 1 only. As we approach the end of Phase 1, we may entertain requests for continued use but this is uncertain.
All assigned spaces shall be properly maintained. All storage shall meet fire and safety codes at all times. Hallways also shall meet fire and safety codes at all times, specifically by being kept clear.
