Campus community starts here

When a prospective student tours a campus, they imagine how they’ll be able to adjust to their new living community and the student life and engagement options before them. They want to see what they’ll be calling home for the upcoming semesters and envision how life on campus will help them fit into their new environment.

Our student life designs create spaces where students can connect and learn with others—feel safe and help them discover their place on campus. We form living experiences that support students’ wellbeing and purpose as they navigate from being freshmen to upperclassmen to graduate students and beyond. Our portfolio includes housing scenarios to match differing preferences and levels of independence as well as student centers where students can build their knowledge and relationships outside of the classroom.

The institution, the student, and the lifestyle help us shape each new student life facility design.

Texas Woman’s University – Mary’s Hall and Parliament Village

TWU created a new second-year experience for sophomores through its 875-bed P3 residential village project. Within three Georgian-style buildings, pod-style living quarters and amenities—including lounge spaces, study areas, and community gathering spaces—promote community for residents. A 700-seat dining facility offers additional convenience, and new residence life offices, multi-purpose classrooms, makerspaces, and faculty apartments are all part of the upgraded student life package that supports the University’s tremendous growth.

University Hall at Westfield State University

Inspired by the concept of two fallen trees, University Hall is a 411-bed residence hall that includes a range of study and social lounges and all-campus multi-purpose spaces to help students forge strong ties to each other and fond memories of their college years. Read More
