Description

UCLA Long Range Development Plan Amendment (2017) and Student Housing Projects

Tiered Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (SEIR)



The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) proposes to develop on-campus undergraduate and graduate student housing (up to 6,900 beds) at the five on campus sites list above. Because the proposed housing development was not contemplated in the 2002 Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), as amended in March 2009 (Existing LRDP), an amendment to add 1,500,000 gross square feet (gsf) is proposed. The proposed amendment to the Existing LRDP would add 1,500,000 gsf of developable space allocated to student housing on the UCLA campus (hereinafter referred to as the “LRDP Amendment [2017]”). The remaining development allocation in the Existing LRDP is approximately 174,615 gsf. The proposed LRDP Amendment (2017) would retain the remaining 174,615 gsf of development allocation with no change in assigned use. The additional 1,500,000 gsf under the proposed LRDP Amendment (2017) would be designated for student housing to meet the housing guarantees identified in the Student Housing Master Plan 2016–2026 (SHMP).

The proposed development at each site would consist of residential and associated support uses (e.g., laundry facilities, study and meeting spaces, mail rooms). With the exception of the Warren Hall site, which would also provide graduate student beds, each of the proposed housing projects would provide undergraduate beds. It is assumed that the first three sites to be developed include the Lot 15, Warren Hall, and UNEX sites, which is based on the ability to maximize the use of limited land resources and develop the proposed housing in timely manner. Development at these sites is estimated to be complete between fall 2021 and fall 2022. It is estimated that development at the Bradley and Drake Stadium sites would be complete by 2025. The proposed Project would also generate approximately 145 new staff positions.

Due to the time limits mandated by State law, comments on the Draft SEIR must be sent at the earliest possible date, but not later than 45 days after receipt of this notice. The Draft SEIR 45-day review period will extend from August 24, 2017, to October 9, 2017.
