Katie Karp, Regional Vice President, Brailsford & Dunlavey

Maria Lonsbury,   Case Manager and Special Projects, Student Affairs , University of Maryland, College Park

This workshop will teach participants the questions to ask and information to seek when involved in long-range planning for housing.  No matter what your current position , you will be called upon to participate in decisions that will impact the campus for the next 50 – 100 years , as we are currently impacted by the decisions made about facilities in previous generations. A case study of one partnership with an institution and a consulting firm will be used to illustrate the impact on a campus.  In addition discussion will focus on how you can participate in such a process and utilize the information on your campus.

Andrew Van Der Stuyf, Residential Facilities, University of Maryland, College Park

The Department of Resident Life and Department of Residential Facilities have opened two (2) new residence halls on campus since 2011.  Both buildings boast LEED certifications and are designed with students and sustainability in mind.  This tour will focus on the facilities components of both Oakland and Prince Frederick Halls on UMD’s campus that help our halls be sustainable.  This includes a special tour to see the SCUB of Oakland Hall and how meters are used to facilitate building-wide sustainability goals.


Walls to Halls Tours:

The Housing & Facilities Operations and Host Committees are excited to offer two (2) Walls to Halls Tours during the conference!  Tours will take place on Wednesday, November 15 from 2-5PM.  Space is limited, so sign up today!

American University

American University is excited to showcase two exciting construction/renovation projects. Anderson Hall, an entirely freshman community, has undergone half of its renovation in summer 2017. Right now is an ideal time to see both the before and the after of this massive renovation project. AU is also very excited that three new LEED certified suite style residence halls opened on our new East Campus this past year. Both projects feature student centered design and meet LEED certification environmental standards.  Sign up for the AU Walls to Halls Tour here!

George Washington University

The George Washington University looks forward to bringing MACUHO attendees to the heart of this nation's Capitol, to tour and learn about our newest residential facility, District House.  This 300,000 sq. ft., Silver LEED certified, 877 bed facility, opened Fall 2016 in the center of GW's Foggy Bottom Campus.  District House represents nearly 10% of GW's on-campus residential beds and is (currently) the last planned new residential construction.  Learn about how the footprint of three, smaller residence halls was transformed into this facility; with a unique challenge of retaining the "historic facades" of each former building, which impacted the project's development cost, and time of construction.  District House boasts two levels of multi-purpose space (meetings rooms, a dance studio, food/retail vendors), creating a central "Boulevard" concept to student and residential engagement, which came about through extensive student input during the development and design phase of the project.
