What is CORE?
CORE will be the hub of Cal State East Bay's campus. The top floor will have a bridge that ties the upper campus--where the Valley Business and Technology and Science buildings are--with the lower campus' University Union, Recreation and Wellness Center, housing and more.
CORE's modern design inspires the innovative thinking and engaging collaboration inside. With broad windows and an outside terrace, the open concept invites connection.
CORE's interior reflects Cal State East Bay's commitment to sustainability, using natural light and modular study spaces that adapt to students' needs.
The University Libraries at Cal State East Bay are the heart of the campus, inspiring students, faculty, and staff to engage in the adventure of intellectual discovery and creation.

The Collaboration Zone in the Hub will foster interdisciplinary team development, drawing on expertise from multiple fields to design new approaches, products, services and ideas, and place students in a position to “launch” the products of their efforts with financing and patent opportunities.
