Student housing is gaining interest at community colleges across the state. Community colleges such as Tompkins Cortland, Herkimer and Onondaga are among those with dorms.
Adirondack Community College in Queensbury is interested in student housing. The college is waiting for Warren and Washington counties to approve a ground lease, allowing student housing to be built on campus. The ground lease is needed because the counties own the property where the campus is located. The college also has to select a contractor for the project. Then the Board of Trustees will have to decide on whether to go forward with the project. The board is expected to make a decision later this year.
Last year, a study showed that there was a demand for student housing at ACC.
