Studies around the country have confirmed the value in offering students on-campus housing to improve student success, recruitment and a positive campus climate. In 2014 Bellevue College engaged Spectrum Development Solutions to examine the feasibility of student housing on campus. Subsequently, we hired NAC Architecture to design Bellevue College’s first Student Housing building.
As of Fall Quarter 2018, our H building is open and accepting applications for occupancy. This project is approximately 132,725 SF building with 400+ beds in 137 units. The unit options are a mix of Studios, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bedroom/4 bed (double occupancy) and 4 bedroom apartments. All units include in-unit kitchens and private bathrooms.
A pizzeria is located on the main level of the HUB and a multi-purpose meeting room is located on the second level. The project features private study areas and lounges on each level.
The building (construction began March 2017, and completed in August 2018) is designed to be highly sustainable and as of August 2019 was awarded LEED Platinum Certification.
