Great Plains announces new student residence at Swift Current Campus

Great Plains College is adding its first student residence to its Swift Current Campus. The college has acquired a nearby building that it will convert into a 12-bedroom residence with shared living and kitchen spaces. “Colleges and Institutes Canada has declared that student housing in Canada is in crisis as many college students face major challenges finding safe and affordable housing options,” said Great Plains President Brad Mahon. “While we don’t consider the housing situation in our service regions to be in crisis, the college is looking to proactively respond [to] this growing concern to best serve our students.” The renovations are expected to be completed ahead of the 2024-25 academic year.
