Facilities Management

Projects in Design

This project will construct 228 new apartment style beds. The first floor will provide a learning community and recreational spaces, as well as accessible housing units. The three upper residence floors are identical, which will include student housing units, shared study/gathering spaces, laundry facilities, and space for a resident advisor on each floor. The shared common spaces on each floor will foster student engagement and a sense of community. The outdoor hardscape and landscape areas will provide additional space for studying and recreation. The proposed project is currently designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold equivalent.
