No residence hall for now: Glendale Community College in California rejects proposal from developer to build on-campus dormitory

Los Angeles Times
Glendale Community College officials have rejected a proposal from a developer to construct an on-campus dormitory, saying that they were unwilling to commit to the long-term land lease and financial obligations that came with the project.

In August, Glendale resident and Korean businessman Chang Lee connected the college with WAM Development Group, which pitched a one-year, exclusive-right-to-negotiate contract to explore the possibility of building a 175-room residential facility, the Glendale News-Press reported.

It would have served to house the college's growing international student population, which typically hovers at about 500. International students pay non-resident tuition, and the extra cash helps pay for additional classes at the college.

During a special study session in September, several college trustees said they were open to entering into a preliminary, one-year agreement with WAM to at least explore the details of the $30-million project, noting that it would come at no upfront cost to the college.
