The San Ramon Valley Center is an innovatively planned new satellite campus for Diablo Valley College. A partnership between the Contra Costa Community College District and two private developers has created this new 200,000 square foot “Village Center”, integrating a community library, community center/police sub-station, child care center and retail/office with the college functions. The new learning center accommodates 2,500 full-time students or 6,000 part-time students.
