College of DuPage president Robert Breuder: Change state law to allow Illinois community colleges to build on-campus housing

Chicago Tribune
College of DuPage President Robert Breuder asked local lawmakers Friday to work to change state law to allow dorms at the the Glen Ellyn community college campus.

During a breakfast meeting with legislators, Breuder said it would be easy to find at least 300 students at the junior college who would move into student housing if it existed. He said many students now live in off-campus apartments, which are more expensive and less safe than on-campus housing might be.

“The one thing we know we’re missing is the capacity to house students here,” Breuder said. “More people would come to us and be educated here if there was a residential experience.”

State law prohibits community colleges from owning or operating dorms. Some legislators at the breakfast meeting seemed pessimistic that the initiative could be seriously considered by the legislature anytime soon.
