WSUV looks at adding oncampus housing

first_imgClark County’s housing crunch became all too real for Eli Campbell when they were evicted without cause from their apartment about a year ago.The already difficult challenge of finding a home was exacerbated for Campbell by their full class schedule as a Washington State University Vancouver student.“I couldn’t find a place to live,” said Campbell, now in their last year at the Salmon Creek campus. “I looked for places all over, and I couldn’t get in. I’m restricted in my income.”Thanks to assistance from the Vancouver Housing Authority, Campbell was able to find an apartment in east Vancouver. But housing resources for full-time students at the growing commuter campus are limited, prompting WSU Vancouver to begin considering adding housing to its campus. A team of administrators and staff will soon discuss the path forward to adding on-campus housing.Despite the proposal being in its early phases, housing is something Campbell believes could have made a significant difference for them and other students who struggle to find a home.last_img
