August 2, 2023 – Please join Santa Rosa Junior College for the ribbon cutting ceremony of our new affordable student housing community – the Polly O’Meara Doyle Hall Student Housing, on Friday, September 8 at 3pm.
With housing stock in short supply due to the high cost of living, wildfires, and a global pandemic, affordable housing can be a significant barrier to higher education, especially for low-income students. To eliminate this barrier to student success, Santa Rosa Junior College initiated a public-private partnership to build a 352 bed affordable student housing residence called Polly O’Meara Doyle Hall.
Polly Hall, as it is affectionately known, will open in August 2023 with priority housing for low-income and first-generation college students, current and former homeless students, foster youth, disabled students, active military, and veterans. Access to affordable housing for students will uplift our entire community, which will benefit from an educated and trained workforce remaining locally and supporting the economic outlook of the region. With Polly Hall, our students will have access to a welcoming space on campus to live, learn, and grow while they pursue their higher education goals.
