SSU housing available

North Shore Community College (NSCC) students now have the opportunity to experience the benefits of residence life at Salem State University (SSU) in a new pilot program which will provide a predefined number of students the chance to live in SSU residence halls while they take courses and earn academic credit at NSCC.

NSCC, like most community colleges, does not offer student housing.  Living on SSU’s campus will provide students with experiences and opportunities that can only be realized by living at SSU, such as  facilities, programs and services.

 “It will be interesting to see how our students react to this pilot program. We know there are some who are interested in having a full, on-campus experience. We also hope that the option will appeal to students in some of our more unique programs, such as aviation science. We are one of only two programs in the state and now with a housing option can pull interested students from farther away,” said Dr. Patricia A. Gentile, NSCC president.

The pilot is part of a growing strategic partnership which includes researching greater collaboration in the areas of academics, admissions, enrollment, student activities, facilities, and housing, as well as the possibility for shared services.
