Six Teams Interested in Developing UC Merced for 2020

Six development teams have strongly indicated their interest in partnering with the University of California, Merced, to realize campus growth plans for 2020.

A second round of requests for qualifications (RFQ) yielded extremely detailed statements of qualifications (SOQ) to participate in the 2020 Project.

The project includes the comprehensive development of academic, administrative, research, recreational, student-services and housing facilities. This includes infrastructure, utilities, outdoor recreation areas, open spaces, roads, parking and landscaping.

Campus Marks 10th Academic Year with Strongest Freshman Class

The University of California, Merced, marks a major milestone today with the start of the 2014-15 academic year – its 10th since opening its doors in 2005 as the first new UC campus in 40 years.

We begin the year with our strongest class of incoming freshmen and the largest and most diverse student body in our history,” said UC Merced Chancellor Dorothy Leland. “The hopes and aspirations of these talented young scholars serve as a poignant reminder of why UC Merced was established and the promise it holds for many generations to come.”

Campus Begins 2014 with Ambitious Expansion Plans

The University of California, Merced, is searching for a development team that will prove instrumental in financing and significantly expanding the campus’ size and capacity to enroll 10,000 students by 2020.

Enrollment at the newest UC campus, which opened in 2005 with 875 students, has surged to nearly 6,200, creating severe space limitations on campus. The 2020 Project is a critical step to accommodate rapid growth in enrollment, which is expected to reach 10,000 students within the next six years.
