DORMITORY

A dormitory, often shortened to dorm, in the United States is a residence hall


consisting of sleeping quarters or entire buildings primarily providing sleeping and
residential quarters for large numbers of people, often boarding school, colleges or
university students. In the UK, the world has an earlier, different but related
meaning: It refers specifically to an individual room in which many people sleep,
typically at a boarding school. The UK equivalent of the American world as applied
to university buildings is hall of residence, often shortened to halls. A dormitory is
like a home that the mission is to prioritize the safety satisfaction of the customer
by providing a high quality of service. Thats why we choose to create this kind of
business. There are so many business like this, but we still want to build it for the

Overview
Bachelor Enlisted Quarters (BEQ) and Bachelor Officer Quarters (BOQ) are Unaccompanied
Personnel Housing (UPH) facilities for single or married unaccompanied military personnel.
Therefore, the facilities described here serve a very specific audience. UPH differs significantly
from temporary lodging facilities which may also serve military personnel. Temporary lodging
facilities resemble a hotel, with more staff support and guest services, and are geared towards
shorter stays. UPH resemble dormitories or commercial apartment buildings and are typically
designed for longer stays.
The primary element of these facilities are the living/sleeping quarters, which may be referred to
as apartments, rooms, modules, or units, and in recruit groups, as open bay. The name used
depends on the branch of Service and the type of room. Occupant rank, training type, and
military group cohesion drive the size and design of these spaces. Supporting facility spaces are
relatively minimal and may include laundry rooms, mail and vending areas, public toilets, and
multipurpose spaces for meetings, training, or recreation.

Building Attributes
A. Space Types and Building Organization
UPH include three categories of functional areas: 1) the apartments, rooms, modules, or units; 2)
interior common areas; and 3) exterior recreation/community areas within the site.
Apartments / Rooms / Modules
These spaces are the living quarters for residents. Common configurations include the following:

One- to four-bedroom apartment with single occupancy per bedroom. This includes
separate sleeping rooms with private closets and bathrooms, shared open living/kitchen
areas, and in-apartment laundry facilities. These may be designed to emulate offerings
found in the local market and, as such, may be referred to as "Marketstyle" UPH.

Two-bedroom apartment with single occupancy per bedroom. This includes two separate
sleeping rooms with private closets. Two occupants share a single bathroom (which
should have two lavatories), and a small service kitchenette. This is known as a "1+1
expanded" room.

One-bedroom plan with a double occupancy bedroom. This includes a single


sleeping/living space, a shared bathroom, and two large closets. A small service area
provides minimal food preparation. This is also known as a "2+0" room. Navy and
Marine Corps plans vary in some ways.

Two-bedroom apartment with double occupancy per bedroom (four service personnel
total). This includes two separate sleeping/living spaces, one shared bathroom, four small
closets, and two service areas. The bathroom may be configured to provide two showers.
The service areas contain microwaves and small refrigerators. This is also known as a
"2+2" room.

One large open area accommodating multiple beds for the sleeping/living room and an
adjacent shared toilet/bathroom with gang showers. This is typically only used for
recruits or in short term deployment situations. This is also known as an open bay plan.

Common Areas
The common areas are the building public spaces. In addition to basic circulation space, utility
spaces, and janitor spaces, common areas may include the following:

Primary entrance. Some facilities may have a staffed reception area.

Laundry. Self-service laundry facilities are usually shared by building occupants. Some
apartment-style units may have laundry facilities located in the room plan.

Bulk storage. Space for residents to store large, bulky items that will not fit in their
rooms.

Mail. Space with individual mail boxes for residents. This may not be included in all
UPH.

Multi-purpose spaces. Multi-purpose areas are for individual recreation, group activities,
training, and meetings.

Vending area. Space for vending machines providing drinks and snacks.

Public toilets. Single unisex or separate male and female multi-occupancy accessible
toilets may be provided adjacent to the lobby or multi-purpose spaces.

Administrative area/office space. There may be a need for administrative space for
facility staff.

Gear Wash. Some facilities may have an exterior or interior area designed for gear wash.

Recreation / Community Areas


These are outdoor spaces that may include the following:

Sand volleyball court

Basketball court

Picnic area with grill, tables, and benches

Shaded structures for public gatherings

B. Design Considerations
Key design goals and considerations for UPH include the following:
Quality of Life
Providing unaccompanied military personnel with adequate, comfortable housing is a major goal
and a critical element of attracting and retaining high caliber personnel. Increasing personal
space, resident privacy, and additional recreational amenities are the primary goals.
Residential Character
UPH provide the war fighter a residential environment through both exterior and interior design
features. This residential character can be reinforced through the following design strategies:

Provide gable or similar steep-sloped roof shapes.

Limit building height to three stories whenever feasible. When larger groupings require
higher construction, consider varying the building or buildings height to introduce some
residential qualities to the complex.

Consider design features such as room projections to create a more residential exterior
appearance as opposed to flat-walled institutional elevations.

Security and Antiterrorism

As a highly-occupied facility housing military personnel, antiterrorism and security are critical
design goals. In addition to complying with standard DoD criteria, UPH may require additional
risk assessments to determine if additional measures are warranted. These measures may include
the following:

Minimize the occupied parts of the building that are exposed to a blast. Locate bedrooms
on an interior protected side of the building further away from a likely blast location.
Locate kitchen and bath areas on the threat side of the building to act as a structural
buffer for occupied bedrooms.

Harden the building surfaces, windows, and structure that are most vulnerable to
exposure.

Minimize access to vulnerable areas.

Design and construct protective features such as balconies to absorb, withstand, and
reflect the energy of a substantial blast load as defined for the established threat level.

Limit the use of doors and windows in high-risk areas. Consider the use of protective and
resistant fenestration and glazing.

Privacy
As with any multi-occupant residential facility, privacy is a key issue. The acoustical design is
critical to ensure adequate noise isolation. Consider noise sources from exhaust fans, mechanical
equipment, and adjacent spaces.
Provide a Durable and Maintainable Facility
These facilities will undergo heavy use and will have regular occupant turnover. Finishes should
be easily cleaned and repaired and designed to endure hard use. Provide impact protection such
as corner guards, as appropriate, and select quality, durable hardware. Use neutral colors for the
more permanent surfaces within the facility to facilitate future changes or easy replacement.

Emerging Issues
Recognizing both the need to enhance military personnel quality of life and competition with
local housing markets, some UPH are now being designed and constructed as "market style"
apartments. These apartments have room patterns and floor areas similar to private sector
housing in the local community. The additional cost associated with providing, in some cases,
additional floor space and amenities is being offset by allowing innovative design and acquisition
procedures for these projects, including using private sector construction standards. Not all
Services are using this approach.

Relevant Codes and Standards

Unaccompanied Personnel Housing are DoD facilities and subject to the appropriate codes and
standards defined in the Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) program. DoD uses the International
Building Code with modifications as described in UFC 1-200-01, >General Building
Requirements. Other documents specific to UPH include the following:
