New Student Facility Opens at UCSD

On May 19, students, staff and faculty members celebrated the expansion of UCSD’s Price Center.

Price Center East, as the project is called, doubles the size of the facility and adds new offices and lunge spaces, as well as a full-service grocery store.

Other businesses scheduled to open in the Price Center East this fall include restaurants like Burger King and Island Grill and a nightclub called The Loft @UCSD, which will host musical and spoken-word performances.

Also, a 4,500-foot ballroom, as well as a dance studio will open June 1. The construction of Price Center East began in 2003 after students approved a referendum to increase fees to build new facilities.
