Top 10 WSU projects

This list represents campus projects that are planned or under way. Cost estimates, with one exception, reflect the total project budget. Start and finish dates are for construction only. Budgets and time lines for future projects are projected and may be revised.

Three of the projects are on hold and will proceed once funding becomes available. WSU’s current master plan lists many other projects in the pipeline, such as new improvements to Martin Stadium, but the projects below come from the university’s list of current projects. A privately developed hotel and conference center on campus has also been left off the list.
