Authorizes county colleges to establish and operate student dormitories.


Sponsored by: Assemblyman WAYNE P. DEANGELO District 14 (Mercer and Middlesex)


Current law neither prohibits nor expressly authorizes county colleges to establish on-campus student housing. This bill would permit a county college to construct, operate, and maintain dormitories, including dining and other incidental facilities, for use by students in attendance at the college. The bill also amends current law to provide that the powers granted to the board of trustees of a county college will include the power to establish fees for room and board sufficient for the operation, maintenance, and rental of student housing and food service facilities.
