STRATEGIC HOUSING MASTER PLAN west campus





A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT

The Strategic Housing Master Plan for the West Campus of Arizona State University is the result of a collaborative effort led by the University’s Steering Committee, Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company, Anderson Strickler & Associates and A Dye Design. The process included participation from a cross-section of University stakeholders, including members of the administration, faculty, staff, and students. The Plan incorporates ideas generated through on-site workshops, focus groups, student survey, planning team meetings, presentations, and reviews. The entire planning team is grateful to all who have devoted their vision, time, ideas, and energy to the process of the planning and creation of this effort.

In response to a dramatic increase in projected enrollment across the Arizona State University System, the University has determined that the West Campus should increase its overall enrollment to 15,000 students by the fall of 2015 and provide housing for 25 percent or approximately 4,000 students by 2020. This intention to create a live-on campus culture similar to the Tempe Campus will require the University to invest in the development of student services, including on-campus housing, retail and contract dining, and recreation facilities. These actions will require a fundamental shift in how the University views the West Campus in relation to student housing, which heretofore has reflected the reality that the majority of students’ needs would be met by the private off-campus market. Additionally, the University will need to make investments in its existing residence buildings at Las Casas as they will continue to be needed. The University is committed to creating a dynamic on-campus living environment transforming its program and facilities to meet the following goals: • Redefine the academic atmosphere and social environment associated with living on campus by developing strong and supportive student residential communities. • Provide students with a memorable and life-shaping undergraduate experience. • Enhance the physical environment of campus through the construction of new facilities, reducing the need for students to commute to campus. • Develop a sense of membership, belonging, and identity for student residents and commuters associated with academic programs. • Strengthen students’ connections to the University by creating exceptional indoor and outdoor spaces to create memorable experiences that are life-shaping.




EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

• Enhance collaboration with all aspects of the University in developing programs and services that reinforce student academic success and potential growth and development. • Create spaces that improve student engagement with faculty and thus their potential for academic success, strengthening their connections to the Institution. • Develop a residential capacity that will serve all students who may chose to live on campus, especially entering freshman and transfers. • Develop student residential communities that support transition to college, first-year academic success and sophomore retention in on-campus housing. In order to achieve these goals the following actions are proposed in the Strategic Housing Master Plan. • The University will develop a total on-campus housing capacity of 4,014 residential beds that includes both residence halls and student apartments • New residential buildings would be three- to four-stories in height, with approximately half the first floor area set aside as residence life program space, common space for the members of the floor community, and other uses that support a vibrant pedestrian environment. • Residential buildings will be configured to create usable outdoor spaces for each phase of development, with special consideration given to sun shading and appropriate landscaping. • The residential buildings would reinforce the existing east-west pedestrian walk as well as the north-south movement of students between the parking areas on the south side of the campus, and the proposed residence facilities on the east and west sides of the library and the academic core. • The existing retail dining area in the University Center Building will be expanded to accommodate additional retail food options. • Two contract dining facilities will be added to support traditional residence hall meal plans for the expanded residential population. • The Plan recognizes that a new student recreation facility is proposed on the west side of the campus – the housing plan recommends that a temporary recreation and dining facility be considered adjacent to the proposed first phase of residence halls.
