Starting with the development of a long-range campus plan, our higher education team focused on the role that student life plays in the overall campus development.

Historically a small commuter-based college, the University of Arkansas had plans to grow its student population and on-campus living and amenities were an integral part of that aggressive plan. Our team worked with University stakeholders to create a plan that balances residence life, athletics, and academic /curriculum expansion programs. From this plan, an immediate need of 450 beds of traditional residence hall living were determined, along with this 230-seat dining facility.
