San Jose State University South Campus Multi-Level Parking Structure & Sports Field Facility

As part of a comprehensive plan to revitalize the south Campus, San Jose State University needed to support new football, tennis and soccer facilities with additional parking. The resulting 4 level, 1,500 stall structure will include an adjacent playing field and serve both students and visiting spectators.

The structure will provide an enhanced entry drive that will welcome students and visitors to campus. To celebrate SJSU’s identity, the main facade will feature screens bearing the University’s yellow and blue colors. The screens will utilize individual metal panel pieces that are both bent and flat, to create the effect of movement and evoke the surrounding hills. Screens on the elevator towers will feature SJSU-themed graphics. The Alma St. facade will provide space to hang banners advertising campus events.

Since the structure will support athletic events, where large numbers of people will be entering and exiting at the same time, a cascading double express ramp is being incorporated into the design to improve ingress and egress. Restrooms will be provided inside the structure to serve the adjacent field. Provisions for EV charging stations, future PV and LPR access controls for permitted parking are also being incorporated into the design.
