Gonzaga Master Housing Plan approved by Board of Trustees

October 4, 2022

SPOKANE, WA – Housing on Gonzaga University’s campus could begin to look different as soon as the end of next semester after the Housing Master Plan was approved by the Board of Trustees.

The Office of Student Affairs contracted with the consulting firm Brailsford and Dunlavey to help craft a master plan for what GU student housing will look like in the immediate and long-term future.

According to Vice Provost for Student Affairs Kent Porterfield, the results from Brailsford and Dunlavey emphasized improving second year housing to address pain points.

“The place we started was really thinking about sophomore housing, because when we look at our current situation, that’s probably the place where we have the most gaps,” Porterfield said. “We ended up with sophomores in some spaces that were originally designed for upper division students, or maybe they’re living in spaces with first year students, which may not be what they desire.”

"The leadership and information from B&D, and the clarity with which they provide it, brings added credibility to the process and ensures that a range of university stakeholders, including senior leadership and our board, are fully informed for – and confident in – their required decision making.”
