A convenience store, located on the ground floor of the North Tower, and stand-alone laundry and recreational buildings service the complex.

The North Village is a mix of residential living units and stand-alone amenities buildings including study, recreational and laundry facilities. North Village is arranged in a campus-style configuration connected by on-grade walkways off of a main east-west pedestrian corridor located south of the complex.

The Dining Commons supports this complex and the surrounding student residential communities. The lower level includes a loading dock, office and service spaces and electrical and mechanical rooms. The upper level houses the main dining facility and includes outdoor seating and back-of-the-house kitchen and support areas.
