The college has been working on this project for more than a decade.

 

The new 16 million dollar facility will house 330 students and should be finished by the fall of 2015.

 

Ron Paradis with COCC says the increased housing will help with recruitment.

 

"You know if they're thinking of coming to central Oregon, parents and students alike like that we have student housing.  Makes for a more comfortable life on campus.  It's nice to have that option with enrollment because we're going to be spending more time recruiting, since enrollment is dropping. It's a great benefit.  Also, data shows students who live in residence halls have greater success and that will help with our student success initiatives as well."

 

COCC is open to OSU Cascades possibly using the dorm as well.
