The Client

A 1,077-bed student-housing complex, the newest UMass Boston residence hall consists of two buildings ranging from seven to twelve stories. The facility offers a mix of room styles, from single-occupancy apartments to four-person units. It also features living/learning amenities open to the entire UMass Boston community, including seminar rooms, study lounges, and a 500-seat dining hall.

The $120 million, 260,000-square-foot complex was built through a public-private partnership, a model that is the first of its kind for the UMass system. The UMass Building Authority contracted with Capstone Development Partners to lease a portion of the UMass Boston campus to construct the residence hall.

The Project
