UC could grow by 33,000 California students, equivalent of new campus, to meet surging demand

The University of California, facing record surges in applications, could increase seats for California students by as many as 33,000 by 2030 — the equivalent of building a new campus.

At least half the growth would come at the UC system’s most popular campuses — UCLA, UC Berkeley and UC San Diego — in part by reducing the number of out-of-state and international students and giving those seats to Californians.
