Daytona State College officials cut a ceremonial ribbon to mark the completion of the new student residence hall May 5.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the four-story, 252-bed facility opens its doors to DSC’s first-ever on-campus residents this summer. The residence hall was designed to be an affordable option within reach for all students, including those on financial aid and scholarships.

“The impact this facility will have on our campus life will be unmistakable,” said Dr. Tom LoBasso, DSC president. “In this era where everyone wants to be online, the residence hall will help build stronger relationships between faculty and students. It will strengthen the ties with our future alumni and create a positive feedback loop that will in turn make us stronger.”

The campus infrastructure is in place for a full college residential experience, and includes amenities such as a dining facility with meal plans, a fitness center, a pool, and recreational areas.

Student housing is projected to increase student retention, as support services such as tutoring, the library, Writing Center, Academic Support Center, and Career Services, are all within walking distance of the facility.
