The Third Place: A First Priority

2015-04-30

There are spaces that just naturally attract students. They’re comfortable, multifunctional, easy to access and a hallmark of the residential campus experience. It’s this type of accessible community space that inspired Starbucks’ living room approach, and that has become the center of many urban planning efforts.

More and more, it’s this quality of place that well-designed residence hall social spaces, student unions, libraries and outdoor courtyards hope to achieve — flexible, hybrid spaces that are vibrant, attractive, well-used anchors of student life, relationship building and community engagement.

Community by Design | Creating a Place to Belong
