Colorado College Student Housing
Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA
Beginning 2013, MASS worked with Colorado College to design several campus facilities, the last of which was a new student housing development. The East Campus Housing provides apartment suites for upperclassmen, encouraging personal growth, while promoting strong community.
A 150-bed facility, the project’s design seeks to maximize social space at many scales, fostering interaction and collaboration between students. By eliminating corridors and creating 7-8 person suites, the design for the East Campus Housing frees up space for several types of community space ranging from small study group areas to large community rooms. These spaces allow for a vibrant community where students form friendships, take on leadership roles, and look out for one another’s safety.
