SJSU is re-envisioning its Campus Master Plan across all campus locations. It’s a process that occurs every few decades, so we invite you to contribute! Join us to explore the options for future campus development through the year 2040. See how community goals and anticipated changes would rebuild and renew the Main Campus and the greater SJSU community. The Campus Master Plan guides a strategy for future growth applicable to campus land use and building, the public realm, mobility, and infrastructure.
