Utility Infrastructure Master Plan

Background and Scope

California State University, Long Beach, the largest campus with in the 23 – campus CSU system was founded in 1949 and is home to over 30,000 students.  The University is composed of over 87 buildings, totaling almost 4.3million square ft of building space, 3.8million sqft of which is conditioned and occupied.  Located near the ocean, the 324- acre campus offers a beautifully landscaped and garden-like setting.

With a strong commitment to high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs, CSULB is positioned to become one of the premiere urban universities in the country and seeks students interested in an exciting and rewarding collegiate.

The proposed University Facilities Master Plan will provide the campus with improved and expanded facilities and resources over the next thirty years and proposes to increase the current figure of 25,000 full time equivalent students (FTES) to 31,000 FTES.  A total of approximately 370,000 square feet is planned to be added to the campus inventory as part of this proposed Facilities Master Plan excluding parking structures.

To meet these growing needs of the campus, existing campus utilities need to be evaluated and upgraded as necessary to accommodate the expansion.
