Student Residence Master Plan
Hanbury was asked to help create a unified vision for housing that would not only meet Simon Fraser University’s recruitment and retention goals but that would be financially sustainable in the long term. The final plan shows growth in student housing from six percent in 2015 to eighteen percent by 2030.
The process included a series of visioning sessions with campus stakeholders, focus groups with students from all class years, a web-based student survey to assess demand for housing on campus, the development of an alignment paper presented to University executive staff showing how housing’s goals aligned with the University’s strategic plan, two, site planning charettes to explore new housing opportunities.
A phased implementation plan and financial plan were then created that outlines demolition of two existing residence halls, quality of life renovations of all remaining halls, and the construction of 1,700 new beds and a new dining center.
