Student Housing comes to Bellevue College!

In September 2018, we open the doors to on-campus housing! This building will be home to 400 students in a mix of units and includes a variety of public areas for studying, meeting and socializing. The building is designed to meet requirements for LEED Gold certification and will have many environmentally-friendly features. These include a rain garden, smart water systems, utility monitoring, permeable paving, and abundant natural lighting.

If you’re a student, you have the option of living in a furnished Suite (1 or 2 bedroom) or Apartment (2 or 4 bedroom) — and can enjoy private kitchen and bathroom within your living space. Take a Tour to view room layouts and more!

Why live on campus?

Living on campus offers a complete environment to serve your academic, personal, and social needs. Your time spent outside of class is just as important for academic success as your class time. If you live on campus, you will likely be more engaged in campus activities, get more out of the college experience and ultimately earn higher grades.
