A precedent-setting project for CU, Bear Creek Apartments provides housing for 1,000 students at Williams Village, a satellite housing cluster close to the main campus.  Site planning and building design focus on creating a sense of community for students, adapting the best of the main campus residential areas.  Designed to complement the predominant Tuscan vernacular style of the main campus, Bear Creek both connects its residents to the larger campus and serves as an impressive gateway to the city of Boulder.
