This community has come to life. In fall 2011, 824 students, faculty and staff took up residence at West Village. Los Rios Community College District opened and welcomed 2,400 students for classes in 2012. In fall 2012, another 630 residents took occupancy at West Village and in the fall 2013, the final 156 units were delivered, bringing the total number of residents at West Village to 1,980. Additionally, in 2013, several UC affiliated labs and research centers moved into some of the commercial space at West Village, including the Office of Transportation studies, Energy Efficiency Center, Plug-in hybrid Center, Western Cooling Efficiency Center, and the Center for Water-Energy Efficiency. In 2016, the community was allowed the ability to double up room occupancy for 624 rooms bringing the maximum number of residents at West Village to 2604.
