PW698 Multicultural Center

This project was substantially completed in June 2019 with the opening of the new Multicultural Center, which now hosts the Ethnic Student Center, Student Advocacy & Identity Resource Centers, and Multicultural Services. The AS Bookstore moved into their newly renovated space in July, allowing for the restoration of the Viking Union Multipurpose Room to its original condition before the start of the fall 2019 quarter.

The expansion has combined the Multicultural Center, Viking Union, Bookstore, Multipurpose Room, and KUGS within a single building that celebrates diversity and inclusivity on campus and provides a visible, accessible, welcoming space to support student needs, diverse identities, and success.

The drawings below (provided by Opsis Architects) were completed at the end of the “Design Development” phase in early September. During “design development”, design details from the initial schematic design phase are refined and cost estimates are updated. The creation of construction drawings follow this phase; they are scheduled to be complete in late January.

Actual construction is scheduled to begin in mid-February, however, office and venue relocations will begin in December. Project completion is June 2019.
