Capital Expenditures

Throughout the school year, CSUN undertakes various capital projects in order to maintain the quality of its campus grounds, buildings, and academic facilities. In the latest academic year, CSUN spent approximately $59.6 million on capital projects such as HVAC replacement, painting, various renovations, electrical upgrades, plumbing, and other improvements. CSUN is also currently engaged in a number of longer-term construction projects intended to further enhance the infrastructure of the University and develop CSUN’s reputation as a modern institution.

CSUN is a multifaceted institution, serving students who are local and nonlocal, residential, international, commuting, online and more, further broadening the rich diversity of its student body. This transformation has required an infusion of capital expenditures totaling $133.6 million in the 2013/14 academic year alone. Among these expenditures were $35 million for a new student housing complex and $39 million for a new facility dedicated to serving mid-career, working professionals, and international students.
