2024 Annual Report

In this reporting period, the University largely returned to normal operations after the pandemic with most students attending class in person. Many employees still have the option to telecommute several days per week.

During the reporting period, the Interdisciplinary Engineering Building (site C11) was under construction. Three sites were under design: W27 (multi-user building including Center for Advanced Materials and Clean Energy Technologies), E59 (ICA Basketball Performance Center), and C6 (New Haggett Hall). One project, the IMA Pool Expansion, was completed during this period. The University has completed ~124k square feet of its 6M allowed total. The University measured a 16% single occupancy vehicle rate, which is a decline since 2018. The University made a payment under Condition 62 (Traffic Signals) and is in discussion with SDOT about paying for Condition 63 (ITS Improvements). With the selection of Bellwether Housing to develop a 244-unit mixed-income tower, the University is making progress toward its commitment to build affordable housing.
