Modesto Junior College

  • Location: Modesto, CA
  • Type: Student Housing
  • Scope: 7 Residential Housing Centers
“The AMS modular living units blend perfectly with the master plan for a campus-wide expansion project. With AMS’ fast-track production, we were able to get our students out of temporary trailers and into spacious, full-amenity housing by the start of fall semester.”
Timothy Nesmith
Director of Facilities & Planning, Modesto Junior College

Project Background

MJC student interns needed to live on the agricultural campus to manage the school’s animal husbandry services. Instead of a traditional dormitory, AMS built seven residential housing centers on the West Campus, each with four double-occupancy bedrooms, two restrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen/living area and a complete mud room.

The contemporary modular units fit naturally with the architectural vision of the college, while providing a residential feel with large picture windows, paneled entry door and low-maintenance lap siding. Site-built covered patios with custom wood pergolas and stacked stone pedestals add decorative detail, giving the ranch-style units an abundance of character.
