Diablo Valley College San Ramon Campus Expansion

CREATING A PLACE TO LINGER AND LEARN

How do you transform a satellite campus into a place where students want to hang out? This was the challenge that the Contra Costa Community College District had for the team at Noll & Tam. The existing San Ramon Campus is a single building that provides excellent educational offerings but lacked “linger and learn” spaces. By increasing gathering and breakout spaces, and adding a new café, our design encourages students to stay a while. Additionally, existing classrooms will be reconfigured to adequately house an Anatomy & Physiology Lab, and a second phase will add a library and learning resource center to make this location feel like a complete campus.
