The Hillel Student Center at the University of California San Diego is situated on a very sensitive site which forms a transition zone between the UC San Diego campus and an adjacent residential community. The Center will serve as the new Center for Jewish Life for UC San Diego students.


Primary components of the Center include a large multipurpose room for dining, social events, and performances, as well as study rooms, a library, a kosher kitchen, a TV lounge, and outdoor activity terraces. The Center will be built to LEED Silver standards, solar energy meeting 30-50 percent of on-site energy demand and optimized water conservation. The scale and character of the project were intentionally designed to blend with and complement the adjacent residential community.
