"Planning and Designing Off-Campus Facilities"
Author: Bernardo, Luis
Published In: Facilities Manager
Date: May/June 2007

For an off-campus facility to succeed, the university must answer strategic questions that connect the facility to both the campus and the community.  Reviews the development of John Hopkins University's $80 million mixed-use off-campus project, Charles Commons, which includes housing, Barnes and Noble cafe and bookstore, retail shops, and a dining hall. Discusses strategies JHU used in the project development that can offer insight for other off-campus facilities: make sure the community benefits too; use site selection to link campus and community; match security provisions to the facility and the community; and take advantage of the richer amenities available off campus. Includes photos.
