Students at community colleges like NIACC are increasingly looking for amenities like housing.

In creating these facilities it’s important to design the space to foster the creation of community. The design encourages the development of small to large student communities to enhance the social aspects of college life and takes advantage of the adjacent campus lakes to create a more unique student experience. Expanded student life opportunities not only improve student life but also enhance the college’s finances and serve as a recruitment tool.
