Project Description

UCLA Saxon Suites

UCLA’s Saxon Suites are a 448 bed housing complex that includes 96 two-bedroom units built in 1981 to house athletes for the 1984 Olympic Games. Composed of major renovations to all six buildings, seismic structural upgrades, and improvements to the site’s hard/landscape, the project also saw the construction of a new commons building with a multipurpose room and lounges. In addition to the commons building, multiple large group study rooms and management offices were also built in the 2.2 acre site area.

Stress Relief

With private units in a garden setting, UCLA’s Saxon Suites offer a community living experience for students to escape to away from the rigors of student life.
