The Academic Village at Colorado State University is a new 3-building, $34.5 million student and faculty residential and dining campus that replaced outdated 1960s-era dormitories on the same site. 

 The Dining Commons is a marketplace-style dining facility that replaced and consolidated four older dormitory cafeterias, sited to create a large central courtyard to enhance student and faculty interaction.  The 2-story, 42,600 sq. ft. facility was designed with a variety of “made-to-order” food venues on the second level, and a sports grille, express carry-out, administration and central storage on the main level, with an overall seating capacity of 700 students.

 Aspen Hall is a 5-story, 219-bed on-campus residence hall, the second phase of the Academic Village student housing and dining complex.  The 61,000 sq. ft. building included 219 student beds in 2-bed/1-bath and 4-bed/2-bath suite configurations, group study rooms, lounges, recreation, laundry and kitchen facilities, and meeting and office space for the Resident Life staff.

Deep roof overhangs and brick, stucco and natural stone were used to enhance the "village" concept.
