The Blinn College Board of Trustees approved a resolution authorizing a privatized student housing facility that will add 453 beds to the College’s Brenham campus.
In November, the board authorized Blinn administrators to enter into negotiations with Servitas, LLC, regarding the development of new student housing. The facility will house 453 students and be located on Blinn property at the corner of Saeger Street and Old Mill Creek Road. It would be ready for student use by Spring 2018.
The project will be funded by National Campus and Community Development-Blinn College Properties, LLC, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established to provide tax-exempt financing specifically for this project. The College and NCCD-Blinn College Properties will enter into a 40-year ground lease, and upon loan repayment by NCCD, the facility will revert to Blinn.
The Blinn-Brenham campus currently houses 1,326 students, more than any other community college in the state. Despite this, more than 400 students were placed on the housing waiting list this fall. The addition of approximately 400 students would generate approximately $2.5 million in annual tuition, fees and state reimbursement.
