Santa Clara is a world-class institution with the infrastructure to support it. From cutting-edge research laboratories to contemplative spaces for quiet reflection, if you need it, SCU has it.

The 50+ buildings on campus include the Mission Santa Clara de Asis, 10 residence halls, a spacious library/learning commons, the Center of Performing Arts, a 2,200 square-foot television studio, state-of-the-art classrooms, the de Saisset Museum, and extensive athletic facilities.

With the generous support of our friends and alumni, SCU’s footprint continues to grow. We recently broke ground on the Edward M. Dowd Art and Art History Building, which opens in 2016 and holds promise to become a premier arts destination in Silicon Valley.

A brand new softball field, also opening in 2016, will serve to attract some of the nation’s top student-athletes to our NCAA Division I programs.
