College Housing Program
The College Housing Program is an affordable way to purchase a home close to campus. This program allows faculty and staff to enhance their involvement in the life of the College community and reduce the number of cars driven to campus.
Please review the eligibility and procedures if you are interested in the program. If you still have questions, please contact Billy Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
