Student Housing at Community Colleges? Virginia Thinks it Might Work.November 22, 2019 |

There hasn’t been much multi-family housing built in the last 20 years in Martinsville that students can afford, according to Jack Hanbury, vice president for finance and administration at Patrick Henry Community College. There’s also long waiting lists for the limited multi-family housing that does exist.
That’s why Hanbury is talking with developers about building student housing.
“We have students living right now in what I would term horrible conditions.” Hanbury said at a Virginia Community College System board meeting this week.
