Community College District Considers Building Student HousingSeptember 1, 2020 |
by Emily Mibach
There is a demand for nearly 1,000 student beds at each of the three community colleges in San Mateo County, according to a report that the San Mateo County Community College Board will review Wednesday.
District consultant Scion Advisory Services did a study of student housing demand among the college district’s students in the spring. Scion surveyed 2,551 students. The survey results helped Scion reach the conclusion that there is a demand for between 3,283 and 4,758 beds in the three-campus system, depending on how much the district charges for rent.
