Innovation District

a hub for innovation

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 SDSU 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 SDSU Innovation District will facilitate internships, create new educational experiences, inspire innovative discoveries, advance technology, and foster new research. Visit the Division of Research & Innovation's Innovation District webpage for additional information about our plans to design a hub for innovation. 

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