About San Jose State University

San Jose State provides a comprehensive university education and offers 145 areas of study with an additional 108 concentrations. Quality teaching and small classes are a priority at SJSU, where tenured professors teach introductory as well as advanced courses.

Campus information

Located on 154 acres in downtown San Jose, the university offers the excitement of studying at a large, metropolitan campus where many cultures meet.

Yet students find personal attention from faculty members in the smaller settings of the university's eight colleges.

San Jose is a newly revitalized city which hosts major sports, the arts, museums and restaurants serving a wide variety of cuisines. The Santa Cruz coastline is less than an hour away and San Francisco is one hour to the north.

San Jose State's location in the Silicon Valley makes it an exceptionally rewarding learning environment for students. Silicon Valley firms and agencies seek SJSU students for internships, summer work programs and for assistance with research and development projects. Silicon Valley firms employ more graduates from SJSU than from any other university in the nation.


All admitted first-time freshmen from outside a 30-mile radius of SJSU are required to live on campus for their first year. University Housing and the International House qualify as on-campus housing to meet this requirement. Students required to live on campus will receive first priority. Freshmen not required to live on campus, transfer and graduate students will be placed on a space-available basis.
