In an effort to satisfy the University of San Diego’s increasing on-campus housing needs of its upper-division undergraduate students, the University engaged Capstone to design and build a Phase III of new residential facilities. Completed in 2007, the third phase of the new housing community provides 258 new beds in apartment-style units. Capstone worked collaboratively with USD officials in Student Affairs, Housing and Residence Life and Facilities Management to meet the programmatic objectives of the campus wide student learning plan. The new facility was specifically designed to maintain the consistency of its campus-wide Spanish Renaissance architectural statement and to provide a unique living and learning environment shared by both the residents of the new facilities and campus community. Upscale amenities for the facilities included a generous amount of common area space to facilitate increased opportunities for student learning, including group and quiet study rooms, meeting rooms, multipurpose space, wireless internet and a 8,500 sq. ft. cafe and fitness center to promote healthy lifestyles.
