Barrett Residential Complex

Barrett Residential Complex

Project Description

The Barrett Honors College is located in the south portion of the Tempe campus (directly north of Apache Boulevard), along the eastern boundary of the campus.

Barrett College houses up to 1,700 students, from freshman through upper-class honor students. The dorm-style living includes one- to three-bedroom units, classrooms, a fitness center, computer lab, amphitheater, outside activity courts, a dining hall, and covered outside dining gardens. Office space for the Dean’s staff and faculty offices are also on site.

The complex consists of seven buildings and includes a “sustainability house” which is a student-designed sustainable living community. The building, which houses 200 students, features low-consumption plumbing using recycled gray water, enhanced energy monitoring, and a green roof with an organic garden.
