San José State University Spartan Village on the Paseo

The Hilton Signia Hotel is located along the Paseo de San Antonio, an urban pedestrian artery that links the San José State University campus with downtown. The renovation of the south tower and connecting bridge into the new Spartan Village on the Paseo will house almost 700 students in a living learning community environment. Social and academic spaces are concentrated on levels one and two, replete with shared working spaces, sustainable food options, and appealing amenities that support student wellness and community.

The 264 hotel rooms have been converted to residential units, manager units are upgraded with new kitchens, and the linen storage on each floor has been repurposed as shared laundry rooms. Notably, the inherent sustainability of reusing an existing building has kept over 75,000 metric tons of CO2e / 60 years out of the built environment. The project is enhanced by a rigorous focus on ‘red list free’ healthy materials and finishes and energy reduction via all-electric appliances.

Spartan Village on the Paseo will not only provide an amenity-filled living experience for our students, it will also further solidify the bond between our university and the downtown San José community. Cynthia Teniente-Matson President, San José State University
