University of Puerto Rico Underground Heavy Rail Station

Client: Puerto Rico Highways & Transportation Authority
Location: San Juan, Puerto Rico
Date: 1997 – 2005


The University of Puerto Rico (UPR) Station was a cut and cover station, with a center platform and entrances at both ends. The entrances are sensitively designed in the context of old historic walls and buildings. The ancillary equipment spaces are housed beyond the platform ends and at the mezzanine levels. The entire station configuration was changed to allow for a better ventilation system and to consolidate the station cut and cover box size. The station lies in the historic section of the University of Puerto Rico Campus and has several historic and urban design considerations.
