The Grad San Jose is a 260 unit/1,039 bed off-campus student housing project located on a 1.5-acre site within one block of the San Jose State University (SJSU) in San Jose, California. The Grad San Jose was completed in 2020, and was designed to meet the needs of students. It is located one block west of SJSU and less than 0.5 miles from the central core of the campus.
The community includes an upscale, high-rise, mixed-use building that offers furnished student housing to the students of SJSU.
The Grad San Jose consists of one, 19-story, L-shaped, elevator-equipped high-rise building with student-oriented amenities. The top 17 floors offer apartments, with building services and student amenities on the first three levels, and double-height ground floor retail.
Most floor plans are designed to give students their own private bathroom, except for one four-bedroom floor plan that includes three baths.
The Grad San Jose includes a three-story parking deck, and an amenities deck above the parking deck on the back side of the high-rise building. The amenities deck includes a building with an exercise center, a swimming pool with sundeck, sports courts, picnic area and landscaping. The first floor of the high-rise includes 14,750-square-feet of retail space.
The building has three elevators, a 1,200 square foot management office, building-wide high speed WiFi Internet, common areas for students, and bicycle storage for as many as 575 bicycles, as well as a bicycle repair station.
