On The Boards: Tradition Student Housing
A Campus with No Housing
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s nursing students at its newest satellite campus are in need of a home. The town of Tradition, Mississippi, is the 10th campus for MGCCC and will double the number of nurses the school graduates from its associate degree nursing program. What this new campus is missing is housing for its students.
Tradition is a new community dedicated to healthcare education and research and will serve as Mississippi’s center for healthcare advances. It includes a satellite campus of William Carey University for its pharmaceutical students, as well. This new town has few housing or retail options for its students and residents. Hollis + Miller is working with the schools and community on planning an apartment-style residence building with retail space on the first floor for its current and future students.
Our Higher Ed Studio is working on a plan for a 200-bed building that will, hopefully, be the beginning of a robust healthcare educational campus on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast.
