Last Spring Vice President Bob Warren’s email to the campus community described a proposed project to convert both Palm Drive and Alviso Street to pedestrian malls over the next year. We completed Palm Drive in September of 2013 and completed Alviso Street summer 2014.
To ensure access to Mission Church in summer during construction, the portion of Alviso in front of the Mission Church was converted to pavers from January 13 – February 28, 2014.

The North Campus Parking Structure, located on the Franklin block between The Alameda and Alviso Street provides parking for approximately 380 vehicles. It is a four level parking structure with a parking counter system showing the number of available parking spaces at each level. It also includes electric vehicle charging stations on the first level and self-service kiosks to purchase daily parking permits. The structure was built to accommodate a planned 350 KW solar panel installation on the rooftop.
