Summary Opportunities and Constraints


The most significant constraint to the physical design of the campus is its steep topography. The valley is the most dramatic example, but throughout the campus, there are areas where slopes far exceed accessibility requirements.

19th Avenue and Lake Merced Boulevard
19th Avenue is both a formidable barrier and safety hazard. Safe access to and from the Muni stop and across 19th Avenue at Holloway poses a significant challenge. Similarly, Lake Merced Boulevard acts as a barrier between the campus and the lake's recreational and environmental resources.
