Campus Projects

Projects are continuously happening on and around the Santa Clara University campus. From small modification to whole building remodels to new construction the campus is constantly changing and improving. Working closely with staff, faculty, and students, The President's office, Board of Trustees and Facilities Master Planning Committee the projects around campus create an environment that supports the University’s initiatives for a community of scholars, integrated education and effective use of resources.

Remodels and Modifications

The crosswalk enhancements project will install high visibility crosswalks, advanced crosswalk signage and roadway improvements. These improvements will be at the two intersections of Lafayette and Franklin Street and Lafayette and Lexington Street. Pedestrians wishing to cross the crosswalk need only to push the activation button to activate the traffic signal controllers to stop vehicular traffic in both directions allowing any pedestrian to cross Lafayette Street safely.

With the construction of the Dunne Hall Tower postponed the courtyard area enclosed by Dunne, Swig and McLaughlin Walsh is being improved to provide a space for students to enjoy. The Kennedy Quad will have a new BBQ area, the existing volleyball court will remain and near Dunne there is a proposed function space. Housing and Student Life are working out what they envision going into this space. The intersection in the middle will have some planting and seating around it and the area to the East will remain lawn. This construction is underway and is scheduled to be completed in the beginning of June. Click here to view a sketch of the future layout.

In order to accomplish the building of the Sobrato Campus for Discovery and Innovation we will first need to vacate the existing buildings, Bannan Hall, Bannan Engineering, Bannan Engineering Labs and Mechanical Engineering. The transition planning for the School of Engineering is being referred to as the STEM Surge projects. The proposed locations for transition space are:

      • Heafey Law Library & Bergin Hall
      • 990 Benton
      • 3305 The Alameda
