Completed Milestones

Campus Redevelopment Milestones

Prior to the start of CCU's Lakewood campus redevelopment project, our campus consisted of 20 buildings, totaling 239,000 square feet. As part of the redevelopment, the majority of these buildings will be replaced with new structures, with the exception of four apartment-style residence halls that were built in 2002. The University also added 4.4 acres of land contiguous to the main campus, in addition to 15.7 acres west of campus at the intersection of Kipling and Alameda.

After the completion of the entire redevelopment project, we will have several new buildings, and together with the existing apartments, our campus will total approximately 700,000 square feet.
