Onondaga Community College - H3 Residence Hall

QPK Design was selected by Onondaga Community College Housing Development Corporation (OCCHDC) to provide architectural and engineering services for the adaptive reuse of a 43,500 SF, 4-story former retirement and nursing home into a new dormitory to complement the College’s existing student housing inventory.

 

The renovated structure contains 171 student rooms, accommodating 193 students in 149 single rooms and 22 double rooms, and a resident director apartment on the first level. Student lounges, a seminar room, laundry, fitness facility, a new elevator and a kitchen-pantry with recyclables storage room per floor were integrated into the design.

 

Site improvements included landscaping, expanded parking lots, access drive, bus loop, illuminated walks, ADA access, illuminated basketball and volleyball courts to enhance the student life experience. The work included development of a stormwater detention basin and green stormwater infrastructure such as permeable pavements and vegetated swales.
