These are paramount for increasing retention and effective learning that builds lasting success for students and faculty.
Together, we can create a living experience that is comfortable, promotes individual student development, respects your institution’s mission, and creates a sense of community and belonging. Let us help you identify your ideal student residential experience, evaluate current residence life facilities and find the best approach to opportunities for improvement.
We’re known for designing campuses and facilities to support a community of learners. We specialize in designing residence halls, welcome centers, academic facilities, and student life environments.

Through an inclusive and engaging workshop-based process, we make the design process transparent – building momentum, excitement and consensus.
