When we originally envisioned this new student housing — what is now called Campus View at Highline College — we knew there was a need for housing for international students. Highline has more than 700 international students each year who live in a variety of off-campus locations, primarily in single-family residences with host families. As our enrollment of international students has grown over the years, we saw the need for campus-based housing.

However, most of the students attending Highline live in the community. Like many community colleges, Highline has traditionally been a commuter campus, meaning that students commute from their existing residences. During the development and construction of Campus View, we’ve seen the cost of housing in the area go up — both to rent and to own — and we realized that our local students needed affordable options as well.

A private company built Campus View, working with Highline College to include features attractive to students.

Campus View is the first in a two-building project, collectively known as Highline Place. The project is owned and being developed by Eastern Link Capital Management Group, doing business as Highline Place, LLC. The project is being built in two phases.

Highline College and the Highline College Foundation (two separate organizations) do not own the land or the Campus View building. Highline College Foundation, LLC, is the organization leasing the space from the owner to use as student housing.

The second phase is a second building. As of now, the Highline College Foundation, LLC, has no plans on leasing any of the space for additional student housing. The owner/developer will handle it completely separate from Campus View.

The building has been called various names during the development and construction process — including Highline Place and Campus View at Highline Place — but the final name is Campus View at Highline College, or Campus View, for short.
