Campus View units are very competitively priced. In the surrounding area, a one-bedroom apartment typically runs between $1,200 and $1,495 each month. When renting an apartment, there is usually the added costs of utilities, such as electricity, water, sewer, garbage, cable and Wi-Fi. At Campus View, utilities are included in the rent, which runs $2,500 to $2,700 each quarter. And, depending upon how far a student lives from campus, there may be added transportation costs. Since Campus View is located on campus, there’s no commuting costs.

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.
