Today’s Student Housing is a critical piece of the campus life experience. Creating a ‘sense of place’ that encourages student learning, promotes a variety of social interaction, and a feeling of comfort and safety greatly enriches the quality of campus life.  

The level of knowledge and understanding of a campus, combined with the eventual realization of how a new project is integrated into a comprehensive master plan is critical. Some key challenges to Student Housing design include:

  • encouraging learning
  • promoting social interaction
  • recruitment and retention of students
  • campus master plan integration
  • minimizing the impacts of on-going building maintenance

Student Housing is a great undertaking. It involves years of planning, coordination, and a high level of commitment to enhancing the higher learning experience.
