The New Aztec Student Union

Welcome back to school, Aztecs! We are extremely excited about the new fall semester and all of the big things that will be happening on campus.

In the 2013/2014 school year, San Diego State University students will have a brand new Aztec Student Union on campus. The new, state-of-the-art union will be located in the middle of the SDSU campus and will include a variety of facilities ranging from meeting rooms to a bowling and games center to the ARC express, a satellite fitness facility.

The new ARC Express will be on the top floor of the new student union and will serve 800+ participants a day. This will greatly benefit all Aztec Recreation Center members as it will decrease crowding and traffic in the ARC, while also providing a workout facility on the east side of campus.

Aztec Lanes, the new bowling and games center, will be just as modern and upscale as the ARC Express. Plans include a full-scale, 12-lane bowling center that will be equipped with multiple flat screen TVs and table games. The new, modern building will also have a café area with a variety of healthy meal-plan options for students, including a Shake Smart kiosk in Aztec Market.

This entire project on the SDSU campus is a testament to Associated Students’ continuing green efforts and commitment to sustainability. The Aztec Student Union will be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum-certified student union in California and the first LEED Platinum-certified building on a CSU campus!
