A series of interconnected buildings were designed around two courtyards in a modern adaptation of the California Courtyard Style. The courtyards provide both informal and formal outdoor spaces. 

The complex formalizes an existing campus edge and combines many different building types into a vibrant center: housing for 1,254 students in hotel-style rooms; state-of-the-art kitchen and dining facilities to accommodate up to 800 people per sitting, three times a day; and an academic/conference center. 

The academic center has a lecture hall that can seat 450. The center also includes a student-operated TV production studio and offices for administrative staff and faculty. The lecture hall doubles as a conference center during the summer months when non-traditional students rent the housing units for a summer learning experience.
