Understanding Students’ Expectations to Create University Communities of the Future
Convened by: Heidi Hampton, Architect, Gensler
University design cannot remain static. It must evolve in response to the ways in which modern students engage with each other, with information, with academics, and with the world. The ability to assess and respond to trends in student perception on value and experience is critical to the development of campus organization and infrastructure provision. In this session, we will examine how socio-economic changes are influencing students’ expectations and how this is impacting strategic planning and facilities provision for universities today and in the future—from a global perspective.
- Identify trends that inform current and future social cohesion among students.
- Assess how your current university facilities and organization meets students’ expectations.
- Better prioritize future capital projects that promote a successful student community.
- Implement design solutions that reflect shifting attitudes associated with the student experience.
