    About Lakeside Graduate Apartments

    This 715-bed graduate student housing project included an innovative approach to life cycle analysis in design, campus-scale ground source heat pump, and extraordinary preservation of surrounding habitat. Building off the carbon-based design approach, the campus utilizes a large-scale ground source heat pump (“geothermal”) system for heating and cooling. The 384,000 sf, project is designed to minimize impact on the surrounding old growth forest and nearby lake, and to foster a cohesive, vibrant and active graduate student community. The Commons includes a multipurpose event space, staff offices, a community living room, kitchenette, outdoor deck and barbeque, computer room, exercise room. LEED for Homes and LEED for Homes Multifamily Midrise rating systems were selected for their applicability to the residential format of this student housing, ultimately achieving a Gold certification across all building types. Noteworthy features included the inclusive approach to stormwater management through groundcovers, bioswales and raingardens; white pavers on over 68% of hardscapes to eliminate heat island effect; and an incredible tree preservation plan during construction, resulting in a project that looks like it could have been there for decades. 

    The project team included: American Campus Communities; Princeton University; Studio Ma; Steven Winter Associate; Dagher Engineering; and Costanza Builders.
