Innovation District

The SDSU Mission Valley Innovation District will enable the university and its partners to help people expand their livelihoods, create new career pathways, expand our region’s capabilities, and design new solutions to important problems facing our community and the world


The Innovation District will include roughly 1.6 million square feet of office, technology, and research space located adjacent to the stadium to activate the space and create an incubator-like feel to the area. In partnership with public-private partners, the Innovation District will provide collaborative research partnerships and create more opportunities for public engagement and interaction with public and private industry partners.

Developed primarily through public-private partnerships, the Innovation District will facilitate internships, create new educational experiences, inspire innovative discoveries, advance technology, and foster new research.

An Innovation District 101 Webinar was held in Nov. 2020. Take a look at the recording to learn about the foundation for future planning for the Innovation District at SDSU Mission Valley.
