Boise State University Honors College
EdR Trust, BSU, and LCA Architects in association with ASG Architects all teamed up for this five-story, 236,000 square foot student housing facility, which is centrally located on campus directly across from the Student Union. Designed with both the growing number of honors students and first-year students in mind, the dedicated Honors living-learning center and first-year housing community features 235 two- and four-person private and semi-private suite-style units. A number of apartment-style units were also included to provide alternatives for upper-division students in the Honors College. The building includes classrooms, study lounges, Honors offices and dining facilities along with robust internet capabilities and Wi-Fi access to accommodate the Honors College which has seen its number of applicants grow from 350 applicants to 750 applicants in the last year alone.
“The new building helped drive that explosive growth, and it provides a first-rate facility to take our program to another level of distinction,” said Boise State Honors College Dean Andrew Finstuen. “Students already report a great experience in the new building, commenting on its central location, excellent classroom space, stunning views and modern style, and newly opened dining facility.”
