Whether your institution is planning to build new residence halls or renovate existing ones, revitalizing student housing is a complex endeavor. How do changes in student needs, community-building, learning, and sustainability options translate into program and design choices?

Join us at the University of Colorado at Boulder's campus to learn how one institution utilized a mix of renovation projects and new construction projects to reinvigorate its student housing stock and move toward its strategic goal of becoming a residential campus by 2020. This hands-on institute will provide you with an integrated and practical approach to student housing planning and design.


Vice presidents for student affairs and housing, executive directors of housing, directors of residential life or housing, associate directors of residential operations, facilities management directors, chief financial officers, residential education coordinators, dining directors, and others involved in the student housing planning process will learn how to approach a housing revitalization project.

This program is ideal for institutions that are in the early phases of planning their campus housing improvements. Cross-functional teams including representatives from housing, dining, planning, student affairs, and sustainability sectors are encouraged to attend.

Campus tour: University of Colorado at Boulder's New and Renovated Projects

The campus tour on the afternoon of the second day will showcase a sampling of CU-Boulder's new construction and renovation projects currently in progress. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour some of CU's prize-winning facilities, including Williams Village North, the largest LEED Platinum residence hall in the country; the Center for Community, named "Best New Facility" in spring 2011 by Food Magazine; and the Kittredge Complex, CU-Boulder's newest residential learning facility.

Parking and Traffic Considerations for New Housing Projects

The post-conference workshop will take a step-by-step approach to planning the parking, traffic, and transportation demands associated with the future housing projects on your campus. The speaker will walk you through considerations for changes in the net number of parking spaces on your campus, predicting the net change in parking demand and traffic flow across campus, and considerations for maintaining solid town/gown relations throughout the planning, construction. and occupation process of your new housing projects. You will also receive advice on avoiding common pitfalls and mistakes when planning your parking accommodations and examine a diverse set of case study examples from across the country. Working time during the session will allow you an opportunity to project the transportation costs associated with your project and identify areas of campus for potential parking expansion. You are strongly encouraged to bring both your laptop and a hard copy of your campus map to this session.
