SAN DIEGO - The $104 million Aztec Student Union at San Diego State University will open at the beginning of the spring semester in January, the school announced Tuesday.
The 206,000-square-foot building will house a fitness center, state-of-the-art bowling and games center, a 300-seat theater, the Center for Leadership and Service, Center for Intercultural Relations, Commuter Resource Center and workspace for SDSU student organizations.
The four-story structure will also include a Starbucks, Chipotle Mexican Grill, The Habit Burger Grill, Oggi's Pizza Express, Aztec Market and STA Travel.
The Aztec Student Union is twice as big as its predecessor, the Aztec Center.
"The Union is a testament to all SDSU students and staff who have worked so diligently to give the campus a modern facility that can cater to the needs of every Aztec," said Associated Students President/CEO Josh Morse. "Associated Students is especially proud of the university-wide partnership that has made sustainability a priority in the new hub for campus life."
Welcoming events are scheduled throughout the spring semester, with tours and other student-focused events set for the first week of the spring semester, which begins Jan. 22.
More ceremonial celebrations will be held during the week of March 3-8. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for March 7.
