Directly across the street from the campus near the entrance to the King Community Center
The initial housing should consist of 3-story units for up to 48 students.
The units will come with kitchen appliances and a washer/dryer but will NOT include other furnishings.
The Southwest Virginia Community College Educational Foundation has approved and provided funding that will allow for this construction. We hope the student demand is such that we can secure another round of funding from our foundation to build more units.
These units will be available to all SWCC students.
Two students will be assigned to each bedroom. The units will be assigned in a single gender fashion where/when possible, but with private beds/baths, it is likely there will be units where females and males will be assigned in the same house.
Parking spaces will be provided at/near each house
Just like any other apartment complex and rental agreement, there will be written rules and standards that if not followed can result in eviction.
Sewage, water, electricity, and internet will be included in the monthly rent. The utilities will be metered at each unit and will be subject to additional charges should there be excess usage.
The monthly cost will be per person for a 12-month lease.
Groundbreaking is set for February 8 for the initial housing available in Fall 2022. Additional units will be completed and available at a later date.
We anticipate these units will be highly desirable and we are now starting to compile an interest list to better determine just how much interest we do have. However, with only 60 total spaces, we anticipate we'll not be able to accommodate every student that is interested. In the coming weeks, we'll determine the selection method that will be used in determining who will occupy the spaces, but the first step is to certainly get your name on the interest list.
