Building for success

University of the Pacific has embarked on construction, expansion and renovation initiatives across all aspect of life at Pacific to meet the needs of current and incoming students. Athletics facilities were built and expanded, residence halls renovated and constructed, buildings for academics were revitalized. One of the latest projects is the 381-bed Upper Division Experience residential halls on the Stockton Campus. Return to the story.

The two residential halls that make up the Upper Division Experience were built on the north side of the Calaveras River using the Collegiate Gothic style for which Pacific is known and offer apartment-style living for students with the amenities students expect. Return to the story.

Renovating and revitalizing older residence halls has been a huge share of the surge in activity. The interior of Elbert Covell Hall, which for a time was used for storage, was renovated to serve UOP International students. Return to the story.

Elbert Covell Hall's interior was refreshed, providing UOP International staff with workstations and students with new lounge and study areas, and a kitchen sink and counter space. Return to the story.

Pacific's Ted and Chris Robb Garden was doubled in size during the surge of construction, expansion and renovation. It provides students with a necessary learning opportunity and the community at large with delicious produce. Return to the story.

The Bon Appétit Management Co. Native Garden was added to an area adjacent to the Ted and Chris Robb Garden. It offers a place to sit in reflection among California native plants. Return to the story.

The pool isn't just limited to athletics; it is open to the Pacific and local community. The pool holds events such as the annual Engineering Cardboard Regatta, where first-year engineering and computer science majors race their handmade crafts across the pool.

The Cube, located in the William Knox Library on the Stockton Campus, provides students and staff with space, innovative technology and expertise for digital projects. It will work with Pacific's new Media X, a new interdisciplinary major designed for students interested in creative combinations of study. Return to the story.
