Honors College’s goal at Northern Arizona University was to provide a cohesive place for Honors Students to live and engage in their academic studies. This 5-story, 636-bed student living project was designed to be the focal point as you enter the NAU campus. Todd & Associates designed a 4-story amenities tower with floor to ceiling windows, drawing in the viewer’s eye to achieve this. A part of the amenities provided is study lounges on each floor. The larger lounges are positioned in the corners of the amenities tower with floor to ceiling windows allowing for natural lighting and campus views. One of these spaces is a social lounge/game room. There is also a fitness center, outdoor space with ramadas and BBQ area, and a pedway connected to the campus. To further support students with their studies, an academic space was designed. This vibrant, engaging space is 19,755 SF and includes 8 state-of-the-art classrooms, study spaces, a writing center, administrative offices, and a student support center. The academic learning spaces are designed as flexible seating classrooms to allow for a variety of pedagogical approaches and greater student collaboration.
