The www.MoreCampusLife.com website was created to keep the entire San José State University community informed about the construction of a new Student Union building. On this site you’ll find out how the project is being funded, when it’s expected to be completed, and what facilities & services will be found in the new building. Please take a look around, and if there’s any information you can’t find, visit the Q&A page and submit a question.
The summer of pavement continues. While students were gone, pavement was poured on the north side of the west expansion and the south side of the east. These new sidewalks have helped mightily in opening pedestrian lanes of traffic through campus. The next step is to pave the large open sidewalk on the south side of the west expansion. This area will be a major venue space on campus for years to come. It can be used as a stage area for outdoor concerts and festivals, or as a resource fair for things like orientation or Greek recruitment week. Paving for such a large space will need to be done in stages and will require quite a bit of time. Once completed, however, the students will have access to a new resource in campus life.
With the closure of the lower level of the Student Union for abatement and the Music Room for pavement on the south side, the Student Union is more crowded than ever. However, both middle pads are still open and there's lots of seating throughout the building for students. Additionally, student groups looking to reserve space in the Student Union for events or group meetings can still do so.
Almost all Student Union, Inc. administrative services have completely transitioned to their new temporary home in Mod F near the ATMs. The Information Center, Event Services, and Lost & Found are still in the Student Union building.September
