Rejuvenation

Investing in Existing Residence Halls for Bright Futures

In this session, we'll provide you with practical strategies that you can apply at your institution as you explore the possibilities of renovating existing student housing facilities.
Abstract: Almost every institution has existing residence halls that they could upgrade for a fraction of the cost of building new. As institutions seek to meet student housing needs, they should consider renovating existing buildings as a viable strategy for creating state-of-the-art facilities. Taking this path can extend building life, attract students, and save capital. In this session, we'll provide you with practical strategies that you can apply at your institution as you explore the possibilities of renovating existing student housing facilities.

Make No Little Plans

Multi-Scale Transformative Planning Implementation

Master plans are more than a campus-wide tool, and with thoughtful planning and execution, institutions can craft a vision tailored to student needs related to housing, dining, and the co-curricular student experience.
Abstract: An institution's success is intrinsically linked to that of its students. High-quality living/learning spaces play a critical role in supporting student achievement, building campus community, and bolstering recruitment and retention. Master plans are more than a campus-wide tool, and with thoughtful planning and execution, institutions can craft a vision tailored to student needs related to housing, dining, and the co-curricular student experience. Using concrete examples, this session will illustrate how student experience-driven planning and creative implementation strategies can bolster student success while using institutional resources more effectively.

How a Substation Project Enabled a New Academic Research Building at Penn

This session will explore how the University of Pennsylvania is achieving new student learning and research spaces within an infrastructure project.
Abstract: With limited financial resources and space constraints, effective use of valuable campus real estate is imperative. Building projects serve more than academic missions on tight urban campuses and campus infrastructure needs must synthesize with academic needs. This session will explore how the University of Pennsylvania is achieving new student learning and research spaces within an infrastructure project. We will share successful innovative business school student learning spaces, operational technologies, and phasing approaches that you can apply to your campus projects.

Mid-century Make-over

Creating a 21st Century Learning Center and Student Hub

As part of repositioning for the 21st century, Drexel University renovated the Korman Center, a 1950s library, and the academic quad to serve as a 24/7 student hub and interdisciplinary academic study center that encourages student collaboration.
Abstract: Addressing current student expectations on campuses with mid-century buildings and a tight budget requires collaboration between the client and design team as well as creative placemaking solutions. As part of repositioning for the 21st century, Drexel University renovated the Korman Center, a 1950s library, and the academic quad to serve as a 24/7 student hub and interdisciplinary academic study center that encourages student collaboration. You will learn how to develop practical, sustainable, and design-forward solutions for updating mid-century buildings and spaces that will attract and retain a diverse student population.

One Yale

A Unified Campus for The Next Century

Yale has unified its community with strategic development along its two-mile-long urban campus, strengthening diversity and inclusion while the historically dispersed communities of the residential colleges continue to flourish.
Abstract: As universities grow, the way they foster community needs to adjust. Yale University has responded to campus physical expansion and population growth in ways that can be a model for others. Yale has unified its community with strategic development along its two-mile-long urban campus, strengthening diversity and inclusion while the historically dispersed communities of the residential colleges continue to flourish. We will share methods for managing physical development while adapting and evolving the campus culture.

Leading with Culture and Community to Transform a University Building

We will share the planning behind the transformation of Yale Law School's Baker Hall and demonstrate how deeply engaging the new occupant's culture can powerfully guide building transformation.
Abstract: How can a university building, intended for short-term use, be re-purposed to support over-all university planning, embody the culture of a new user, and enhance that user group's pedagogy? Reusing campus structures can be highly effective, but limitations and pre-conceptions can be challenging. We will share the planning behind the transformation of Yale Law School's Baker Hall and demonstrate how deeply engaging the new occupant's culture can powerfully guide building transformation.

Predictive Analytics

Harness Digital Information for a Current Master Plan

We will discuss a computational metrics mobile app and how Miami University uses it for master planning.
Abstract: Long-range master plans make assumptions about the future, but historic data is actually a more reliable predictor. A master plan built on data, not assumptions, is also easier to adapt to changes. We will discuss a computational metrics mobile app and how Miami University uses it for its master plan. With practical tools and processes in hand, you will be able to prioritize available data, make more informed planning decisions, and align your team before executing future planning priorities on your campus.

Developing New Typologies for Innovative Group Housing in Under-Utilized Spaces

This session will describe how an innovative typology for students’ small-group living transformed and expanded group living options at Lawrence University.
Abstract: To be fully residential without adding campus buildings, Lawrence University successfully prototyped new group housing typologies in under-utilized residential building space across campus. This session will describe how an innovative typology for students’ small-group living transformed and expanded group living options in surprising, incongruous campus spaces. You will learn how the expanded project team, tasked with thinking outside of the box, invented a new housing typology uniquely connected to the existing campus culture and site.
