Funding for university facilities

The new Engineering and Computer Science building is funded by a combination of state revenue bonds and WSU funding from dedicated land grant revenue. As a state institution, WSU capital projects are developed from a 10-year plan and are reviewed, prioritized and funded by the legislature. By statute, operating funds and capital funds are allocated and spent independently and cannot be used interchangeably.

The new engineering building was initially funded in 2005 and is open as of spring 2012 to serve laboratory, classroom and research needs in engineering and computer science.
