CSU State Budget 2022-2023
July 7, 2022
State Budget Update –July 7, 2022
2022-23 Final California State Budget
Governor Newsom recently signed into law the fiscal year 2022-23 budget passed by the California legislature. This budget includes increased recurring funding for the CSU’s general operating fund, one-time funds to support deferred maintenance and capital projects, and additional funds designated for specific programs across the CSU.
Increased recurring funding
The budget includes an additional $211 million of recurring, unallocated funds for the CSU’s general operating fund – equal to the amount proposed by the Governor’s Office in May. This increase in funding will support increased costs for campus operations and negotiated compensation increases for faculty.
One-time funds for capital projects and other legislative priorities
The budget includes $563.7 million of one-time funds for deferred maintenance, capital projects, and other legislative priorities. These funds will allow CSU campuses to address deferred maintenance on our existing facilities and construct new facilities. A portion of these funds will be allocated to SF State to address the projects prioritized by the campus.
West Campus Green project
SF State was allocated $116.3 million for the construction of the new West Campus Green housing and student health services building as part of the Higher Education Student Housing Grant (CASH) Program. This funding will provide critically needed housing for students and help the University address enrollment needs, as well as allow the campus to offer more affordable student housing.

Resident Undergraduate Enrollment Growth—An increase of $81 million ongoing General Fund to support California resident undergraduate student enrollment growth of 9,434 full-time equivalent students in the 2022-23 academic year.
