Public-Private Partnership Underway on 1,055-Bed Residence Hall at University of Washington Bothell


The 300,000-square-foot development will include 1,055 beds for student dormitories, a 15,000-square-foot dining room and 20,000-square-foot university office space.

BOTHELL, WASH. – Construction of a 1,055 bed dormitory at the University of Washington Bothell is underway. The community is being developed through a public-private partnership (P3) between the university, Capstone Development Partners and Harrison Street. The 300,000 square foot development will replace Husky Village, an existing student housing development on campus in Bothell, which is 15 miles outside of Seattle.

The project comprises three six-story residential buildings with suites and apartments for students and doctoral candidates. The development will also include a 15,000 square foot dining room and 20,000 square feet of office space for university services and administration.

Construction began in October for Phase I of the project, which is expected to be completed in February 2023. Phase II of the development is to be delivered in August 2024. The community was designed by Mahlum Architects and is being built by Anderson Construction. After graduation, Capstone Management Partners will operate and manage the community in coordination with the university.

Capstone and Harrison Street have worked together on five P3 developments, including projects with Seattle University, the University of Chicago, Arizona State University Polytechnic, Cornish College of the Arts, and the University of South Florida.
