​BRENHAM, WASHINGTON COUNTY - The Blinn College Board of Trustees has authorized Blinn College administrators to negotiate with Servitas LLC and its partners for a contract to develop student housing containing more than 400 beds.

The project, which would be located on Blinn property at the corner of Saeger St. and Old Mill Creek Rd., would be ready for student use by fall 2017.

Servitas and its partners would fund the project via an issuance of bonds by National Campus and Community Development. Upon termination of the 40-year lease, the facility would revert to Blinn College.

The project would not affect Blinn’s ability to proceed with its new Bryan West campus, which is expected to open in spring 2017.

The Blinn-Brenham campus currently houses 1,326 students, more than any other community college in the state. Despite this, more than 400 students were placed on the housing waiting list this fall.

The addition of approximately 400 students would generate approximately $2.5 million in annual tuition, fees and state reimbursement.
