In this report, we explore three primary research questions in order to develop recommendations for the SDSU Mission Valley project based on its stated goal and through conversation with individuals involved in the planning process for Mission Valley. Based on our research, we offer three recommendations moving forward. First, maintain a clear dedication to maintaining affordability for residents in all mission statements for in any public-private partnerships the university considers. Second, maintain open channels of communication with students and other stakeholders in the planning and development process in order to maximize student access. Finally, consider transfer students as a priority population for affordable housing units, as they are most likely to meet eligibility criteria.
