NIC begins construction on residence building


North Island College has begun construction on its new Student Housing Commons, which will free up space in the community by introducing housing for 217 students by Fall 2025. The commons will offer a range of housing options, including family housing, individual bedrooms, studio apartments, and accessible units for individuals with disabilities. The buildings will also include common areas including interfaith rooms, a community garden, play areas, and gathering spaces. “Obviously, it makes success in the classroom a lot more difficult when you’re wondering, “˜Do I have housing next month or next week?’ [“¦] This project will hopefully alleviate some of that strain on our students,” said NIC Student Housing Manager Jay de Montarnal.
