Student Housing Phase III, California State University, Northridge
Based on the success of Phase I and II student housing, CSUN hired AC Martin for Phase 3, including 200 beds and a major renovation of the main outdoor dining courtyard for campus housing residents. The project will also include a large study lounge, classroom, two multi-purpose rooms for programmed events, a large eat-in communal kitchen, a mail/package room for all on-campus students, and the Housing Facilities offices. Phases I and II are a 4-minute walk from Phase III. Phase III is directly adjacent to CSUN’s 1990’s dining hall. Our project will upgrade and renovate the dining courtyard and connect it to the Phase III student housing courtyard. This area will be the new social HUB for freshmen with a large, shaded trellis enclosing the two courtyards and creating student life event spaces. The communal kitchen was doubled in size allowing for larger student groups to cook together. Phase III also has the package/mail room for all on-campus housing to draw students to this new social HUB. Phase III is currently moving into construction.
