Windward Commons Gets Nod from National Magazine


(September 19, 2011) Windward Commons, the university’s freshman dedicated residence hall that opened in fall 2010, has been selected by Multifamily Executive magazine as one 10 university housing projects from around the country for its “unique style, environmental consciousness and high standard of student living.”

In “10 Students Housing Projects We Love” the magazine highlighted Windward Commons for its architectural features and student-focused living spaces. “Students living in Windward Commons will find comfortable living in a convenient location,” the article said. To arrive at its Top 10 list, the magazine searched for university housing projects across the country that were developed and delivered in the past five years.

Windward Commons, a four-story, 567-bed freshman residence hall, expanded Armstrong’s on-campus housing capacity to more than 1,400 students.

Multifamily Executive was established in 1996 and is published monthly to serve owners, property managers, builders and developers of multifamily housing, including senior housing, luxury properties, affordable housing, student housing and military housing.
