Issue 3: Use the location and design of the University Center to improve the pedestrian-orientation of the campus

Proposed design responses:

  • Place University Center buildings so that they support South Sequoia Way (the South Entry Road) as the south gateway into campus
  • Place a major landscape/circulation node between the South Sequoia Way and University Center as an orientation device to make campus structure more understandable
  • Provide clear pathways from student housing to the University Center
  • Locate delivery routes so that they intrude minimally on pedestrian circulation to the University Center
