Cégep de Trois-Rivières receives $8M for new student residence

Cégep de Trois-Rivières has received $8M to acquire a student residence with 100 rooms. The Government of Québec explained that the cégep faced far greater demand for housing last year than it could meet, an issue which was complicated by the lack of affordable housing in the City of Trois-Rivières. QC Minister of HIgher Education Pascale Déry stated that it is important to the provincial government that higher education institutions’ recruitment efforts not be slowed by a lack of student housing.
