The University of San Francisco's Pleasanton Campus is now open.
The University of San Francisco’s campus in the East Bay is now
smarter, not only for its six new smart classrooms but also for its convenient
Pleasanton location within walking distance of BART — making it easy to access
and better for the environment.
The campus, previously in San Ramon, recently relocated a
short distance from the West Dublin-Pleasanton BART station, Altamont Commuter
Express and Amtrak stops, and Highway 580. The move puts USF close to
restaurants, shopping, and Pleasanton’s business corridor.
“The new USF Pleasanton Campus builds upon our extensive
30-year history serving the academic and professional development needs of the
East Bay,” said Desiree Shaw, Pleasanton Campus director. “We are excited about
the move and the opportunity to expand our program offerings and host workshops
and educational seminars for the community-at-large.”
The campus offers six smart classrooms with audio and visual
equipment hookups and wireless Internet. Library and computer lab staff is available
to students and faculty on weekdays and Saturdays. The Pleasanton Campus includes
administrative and student advisory offices, a multipurpose room, student
lounges, private faculty offices, and a faculty lounge.
Pleasanton Mayor Jennifer Hosterman ’01 welcomed the move,
saying residents who live outside of San Francisco have always treasured USF’s branch
campuses. “The University of San Francisco enjoys a top-notch reputation across
the entire country, providing quality education leading to improved life skills
and meaningful careers,” Hosterman said. “Through its regional campuses, this
premier institution makes possible a quality educational experience to those
who might otherwise not have access.”
