The fourth phase of UC Irvine’s multi-phase East Campus development, Plaza Verde is a student housing community consisting of a 5-story, Type III building with 410 units ranging from one- to four-bedroom apartments totaling 1,441 beds. The three-story, concrete community center features multi-purpose space, a fitness center, leasing offices, Internet cafe, and study rooms. Outdoor amenities include multiple courtyards containing decorative hardscape, barbecue area, study cabanas, and bicycle parking.
