In colleges around the country student homelessness is a problem on the rise. Students who are affected often reside in cars, abandon buildings, or shelters. This thesis focuses on integrating underprivileged groups like homeless students and underprivileged youth, with other school related user groups such as traditional students, parent students, and faculty. The unique needs of each of the user groups are defined and a understanding of the building typology associated with each user group will be integrated together to create a project where six unique user groups will be able to live together while gaining a mutual benefit from one another. The interaction between these user groups will create a sense of community and will create a sense of place for underprivileged groups.
