Situated on Gamble and Perry Street and bordered by Bragg Stadium to the south and the Student Services Center to the east, the site holds a prominent location on the FAMU campus for first-time visitors as well as campus faculty, student and staff. The buildings form a gateway to the football stadium, framing the central axis with a covered arcade and providing landscaped and hardscaped path to the stadium. The Main courtyard serves as a social gathering space that creates a terraced view towards the football stadium during gameday events and provides ample space for vendor and social events. The Alumni walk is envisioned as a paved promenade that connects Gamble Street to the Stadium and becomes an active event space during games and social events for the campus.

This two-phased project delivered 800 beds. Each unit has shared entry and bathroom with a private bedroom. The dormitory quads provide generous space for student activities. The two flanking quads are ample in size to provide adequate daylight to all the rooms while providing a sense of community and academic enclosure.
