Each suite features a combination of single and double bedrooms (majority are double bedrooms), as well as a private bathroom. The movable bedroom furniture includes a bed, desk, desk chair chest of drawers and closet space.

The neighborhood design boosts community space activated by the programs it will support. The spine of the housing neighborhood creates a common circulation route open to the entire campus and provides access to key program spaces.
