Student Housing Design

Our extensive experience with student housing for colleges and universities includes over 2,000 student apartments and dormitories, with projects ranging from on-campus undergraduate facilities and amenities to non-traditional, international and graduate-level housing communities. We understand today’s sophisticated student consumers and their expectations for an affordable, accessible, pleasant and livable environment.

Whether a densely populated high-rise structure in an urban environment or a low-rise walk-up apartment on the edge of a rural campus, Marks Thomas strives to integrate each student housing project within the surrounding community in a manner consistent with the school’s mission. We have achieved national recognition for our academic architecture with a National AIA/CAE Educational Facilities Award of Design Excellence.
