The West Campus in San Jose recently completed a major renovation
project that features more than $1 million in facility enhancements.
Primary components of the project included: construction of new
lobbies for the main entrance to the campus and the campus-based
community clinic; upgrading building entrances to provide easier
accessibility for individuals with disabilities; painting throughout the
campus; new carpeting and improved technology resources in many
of the classrooms; and replacing the HVAC unit.
The renovation project is the most comprehensive facility
upgrade since the West Campus consolidated its former Sunnyvale
and Santa Clara campuses and moved to San Jose in 1993. To minimize
any disruption of classroom and clinic activities, most of the
work was completed while students were on extended break
between the spring and summer quarters.
“With our enrollment steadily increasing, by securing a longterm
lease, and with the 2016 Super Bowl taking place right down
the street at the new 49ers stadium, this is definitely an exciting
time at the West Campus,” says West Campus President William
Meeker, D.C., M.P.H. “This renovation project adds to that excitement
by enhancing the aesthetic and operational function of the
facility, which translates to enhancements in the educational experiences
for our students and the clinical experience for our patients.”
