Cooling Centers


During hot weather, specific facilities in the City of Santa Clara are designated as cooling center, locations where the public may come to get out of the heat during normal business hours. If chairs are set up for the public to sit down, their location should not impede building egress, such as near entrances or in hallways.

Following is a list of cooling centers and their hours of operation in the City of Santa Clara. Please recommend that citizens call in advance to confirm current facility hours.
