SJSU's Expanding Footprint

A New Face to the Neighborhood
Spartan Village on the Paseo anchors the eastern end of downtown's core pedestrian walkway the Paseo de San Antonio which links SJSU with the rest of the community. SJSU properties at the Hammer Theatre Center and Alquist Redevelopment site contribute to the evolving cultural fabric of the neighborhood.
Step Into the New Home for Spartans
SJSU's plans for renovation start at the ground level with a welcoming and secure entrance for students coming from campus and throughout downtown to Spartan Village on the Paseo. Just outside the front door are multiple VTA bus and light rail lines, museums, music and performing arts venues, and dozens of eateries and entertainment options for students.
First Level Floor Plan
A singular secure entrance welcomes student residents to Spartan Village on the Paseo and serve as a hub for renewed vibrancy in the area.
Student-Centric Modern Amenities
SJSU plans to renovate the entire second floor of the existing structure to host a robust offering of new amenities geared towards student life and student success. On-site dining facilities, a communal kitchen, a study lounge and study spaces with stunning vistas onto the Paseo, a games room and a fitness center ensure all student residents' needs are met.
Stay Refreshed at the Spartan Cafe
On-site dining facilities include a cafe, conventional meal service, and a communal kitchen available for student resident use all ensure students can focus on their success without worrying about where or when to grab food.

Unwind in the Entertainment Center
A gaming and entertainment center on the second floor invites residents to unwind and socialize. With an easily reconfigurable space, the room transforms into a screening room for community movies and gatherings.
Stay Healthy, Here
