Construction is nearly complete on a new building to house student services and administrators on the San Elijo campus of MiraCosta College. The $12.4 million build is part of several capital improvement projects underway that are being funded by Measure MM.
Designed as a new gateway to the lagoon-adjacent campus, the 10,770-square-foot Student Services and Administration Building will serve as a single location for a variety of key student services, including admissions, financial aid and counseling. Construction is expected to be done by the end of the year.
The MiraCosta Community College District is taking advantage the time while students are distance learning to finish up construction projects at two other campuses, as well. Modernizing aged facilities became a pressing issue in light of the pandemic, a district official said.
