The student residences at Quest University comprise 204 units of student housing for this quickly growing private liberal arts campus.


The 6-storey wood frame buildings provide a combination of single and double occupancy sleeping and study rooms. Large communal student lounges at each floor level open to spectacular mountain views while promoting social interaction and a sense of community.


The project successfully achieved an extremely short design and construction schedule on a modest financial budget.
