Student Apartments

These student apartments have been developed in three phases:  a 36-apartment, 156-bed building; a 52-apartment, 224-bed building; and a 41-apartment, 179-bed building.

These building have been constructed in 3 and 4-story high groups clustered around central entries.  The clusters step down the hillsides of the rolling, wooded Messiah College campus.

Each apartment contains its own living room, dining area, kitchen, and bathroom, in addition to one or more bedrooms.  The apartments are air conditioned and carpeted, and provided with extensive tackable wall surfaces.  Common areas include lounges, laundries, and student storage space.

The apartments are not only an attractive alternative to the more traditional dormitories, particularly for upper class students, but also an excellent way of housing the summer conference population, which often includes couples and families.

The buildings are constructed of masonry bearing walls and precast concrete floors, with wood roof trusses.

This firm has designed almost all of the building at the College over the past three decades, as it has grown to a student population of over 1300.
