SDSU (San Diego State University) Transit Center is the only underground station on the San Diego Trolley System and opened on July 8, 2005. It has two side platforms and is the only station where a fence runs the length of the platforms between them. Most of the walls of the station are bare concrete or sheathed in silver, the double height ceiling (except where the mezzanine is) has an orange roof and natural light shines in through windows above the Old Town-bound platform from the lower plaza that surrounds this station in the middle of a college campus. Two staircases/up escalators from each platform lead to a central mezzanine area. Above the Old Town-bound platform are two openings that lead to a landscaped plaza with lots of grass in the middle. TVMs are here between the two station entrances. The one wall of the station visible above at street level is clad in marble between the opaque windows that let light into the station. A wide staircase leads up to the transit plaza directly above the station. This upper level is where the station's and campus' bus loop is. Two elevators lead directly up from each platform (the stop has 4 elevators in total) and make an intermediate landing stop on the mezzanine.
