The Gulf Coast Community Design Studio is fortunate to be in a place that is well suited for university teaching studios.  GCCDS has gotten involved in university design studios in two ways.  For four years GCCDS ran a design studio with students from Mississippi State University along with students from the University of Minnesota, Boston Architectural College, University of Tennessee and Auburn University.  GCCDS has also been host to other universities that have worked on projects on the Gulf Coast.
