University Community



Plans to develop the University Community on remaining VST land continues to move forward through local government and state review processes. The development will not only generate more revenue to support students countywide, but also create housing for all income levels as well as property for future schools, parks and public safety institutions. 

In March 2023, a ruling by the Merced County Court allowed the VST to expand its capacity to serve students across Merced County and not just in the City of Merced. The expansion is projected to take effect in 2026.
