As the sixth building designed by the firm for Northeastern's new West Campus, this 140,000 square foot mixed-use building completes the build-out of the 1.2 million square foot Master Plan.

The building reinforces the university’s academic mission and commitment to creating a new mixed-use sector of campus. Creating a vibrant, high-density environment that is active at all hours of the day, the building embodies the spirit of “living & learning.” It includes three significant components: Freshman Honors Housing, a Cultural Center, and an Academic Center.

The Honors Housing, with 230 beds in six-person apartments, celebrates academic excellence at the heart of this new mixed-use precinct. A two-story, four-part lounge (including Lounge, Study Room, Laundry, and Study Nook) encourages interaction among residents while simultaneously offering places for group/individual study. The Honors Program offices occupy a prominent ground-floor location at the front door to the Honors Housing.

The Cultural Center, located on the lower two floors, celebrates academic diversity and outreach. Together with the building’s residential and academic spaces, it makes the building a hub of student life.

The Academic Center complements the Honors Housing, helping the university achieve its goal of strengthening the Honors community. It includes seven classrooms (300 seats total) and a 270-seat auditorium. The Academic Center anchors the lower three floors to the central pedestrian promenade of the West Campus.
