The newly designed five-story Northside Residence Hall at Washington State University is student housing that enhances WSU’s Residence Life program and is intended to increase student retention.
The NAC Architecture design concept meets the budget goals of a modern major university yet also possesses quality benchmarks that recognize the need for a long service life and enhanced energy performance.
Each floor is home to 75 residents, but is then sub-divided into a West community of 37 and an East community of 38. Variety of room size, type and layout are available on each of the upper floors of the building, and the layout is repeated to create economies with the building services. Shared amenities include a large-volume rec room, living room, outdoor courtyard and rooftop terrace.
