Undergraduate students in the Department of Civil Engineering have partnered with the Low Income Housing Institute to construct a Tiny Home. The build will be completed over several work days during the Fall Quarter by civil engineering freshman and transfer students, with support from CEEGR faculty and staff from Facilities Services. A new group of students will construct a second Tiny Home in the Spring.

Seattle University is proud to help our students live our mission, and to provide opportunities for our STEM students to contribute to a more just and humane world.
