Santa Clara University needs more room to grow its students' brains.
The school has grown its lease at 475 El Camino Real to 26,000 square feet. Santa Clara University had previously occupied the first floor of the two-story building and will now occupy the whole thing.
The building is part of University Station, a R&D and retail campus across from the university owned by Bixby Land Company.
“Santa Clara University is intelligently utilizing off-campus opportunities as part of their overall real estate strategy,” Walt Stephenson, a Cushman & Wakefield broker who advised the university on the office expansion, said in a news release.
The school will occupy the new space in January 2014.
