Student Housing And Dining Master Plan

New Mexico State University had experienced a decline in its residential population due to aging housing stock and expanding options off campus. In response to this shift, the university wanted a plan to maintain and improve its existing facilities, enhance its residential program, and become more competitive with housing programs regionally and nationally. As a result, the university hired B&D to prepare a master housing plan. Our work entailed: a market analysis to identify housing demand; recommendations for housing types, amenities, and programs; a phasing strategy for developments/renovations; and a financial analysis to demonstrate the feasibility of the projects. As a result, in 2006 the university completed construction on Pinon Hall, a 306-bed freshman residence hall. And in 2007 Chamisa Village Apartments opened, where each resident has a private bedroom and shared kitchen and leisure spaces.
