HENDERSON – Nevada State College, the nation’s second-fastest-growing college, announced that its first-ever on-campus student housing is nearing completion. The application process is currently underway for the fall 2020 semester. Most housing units will be available for occupancy prior to the start of the fall semester.
The 342-bed housing village, which can also accommodate students with families, is centrally located on the main campus and includes one-, two- and four-bedroom floor plans. Residents will have several amenities available to them such as a state-of-the-art fitness center, swimming pool, fully furnished apartments, full kitchens, in-unit washer and dryer, study lounges, and planned community events. The Village at Nevada State College, previously approved by the Nevada System of Higher Education’s Board of Regents, is a privately financed, built and managed project.
Student housing has been a longtime initiative for the leadership team at Nevada State College as it continues to be identified as one of the major barriers for students who want to pursue higher education.
“The Nevada State College student housing project is a result of working with our students to identify their most critical needs. On campus housing has been proven to help students overcome obstacles and increase success in completing degrees,” said Bart Patterson, president of Nevada State College.
The student housing also comes with 24/7 on-call staff for any student needs and provides roommate matching for anyone looking to share an apartment. Rent, which includes Wi-Fi and utilities, ranges from $550 to $1,200 per person.
Nevada State College’s student housing is being developed by American Public Development, LLC, constructed by Sletten Construction and will be managed by American Campus Communities, a national student housing operation that has experience in introducing first-time student housing to college campuses.
The College is planning a mix of on-line and hybrid classes (part on-linepart in person) for the fall 2020 semester, but students can be released from their lease and any deposits returned in the event only on-line classes are permitted for fall 2020. The housing project will open with all appropriate safety protocols to address COVID-19 concerns.
