Creating communities of living on campus
Student life facilities are the heart of an academic community. They must be welcoming for many and a refuge for one; accommodate the diversity of a small city but offer the familiarity of home. Residence life must meet student needs and secure their ability to both develop and succeed as global citizens. Plain and simple. Students need a safe and secure environment that is conducive to healthy living and learning, one that provides opportunities and encouragement to grow.
As students become more diverse and the university becomes more engaged with its regional and local communities, as learning is not confined to the classroom, nor to a 12-hour day, student life facilities have become important centers of communication, collaboration, living and learning. They provide a common place where all students can engage the college or university on their own terms.
We are passionate about creating living environments that evoke home, comfort and community. For each client, we lead a process that builds consensus around solutions that are just right for their campus. Each institution must define their mission for residence life: what type of housing is appropriate, how the mix of rooms and units relate to their demographics, and where students should live. The solution to each of these issues impacts each student's memory of their campus and it is these solutions that define each of our living environments.
We have programmed, planned and designed more than 10,000 beds through residence life master plans, renovations and new buildings at institutions throughout the United States, Canada, Middle East and Africa.
