This thesis will explore a new model for a Residential Campus Facility, a mixed use building, housing on top, public campus space below. This facility will help create a sense of community on campus, creating a richer academic and social environment. My site for exploration is located at the University at Buffalo. The Residential Campus Facility will be programmed for fraternities and sororities. Fraternities and sororities historically reside on campus and can be a link between the community and campus, as well as the campus and students. Fraternities and sororities have a unique mix of activities they engage in, ranging from academic seminars and personal development programs to school pride functions and philanthropy events. Fraternities and sororities located in a Residential Campus Facility will have a greater opportunity to create a relationship with fellow students and faculty members, enriching their academic experiences.
