Student Housing Announced
Published on June 7, 2018
Ownership of Delta Hills Apartments in Melbourne, Arkansas was transferred to Ozarka College, effective June 1, 2018. As of the Fall 2018 semester, the College intends to use these apartments as residence halls/student housing for full-time, degree seeking Ozarka College students. Current residents have been notified of this change and accommodations are being made to ensure they are able to find suitable housing and do not become displaced.
Act 556 of 2017 authorizes two-year colleges in Arkansas to have residence halls for the first time. The passing of this legislation allows Ozarka to offer opportunities not previously available to their students, enhancing the College's ability to be committed to student success.
"We at Ozarka College are very excited about the addition of student housing, particularly for some of our more unique degree programs that are not offered elsewhere in the state, " commented Ozarka College President, Dr. Richard Dawe. "A need has developed for Aviation, Culinary, Welding and other programs and there continues to be a shortfall of affordable housing in the Melbourne area. Housing of this size will serve as an excellent test bed for possible larger facilities in the future. "
The apartments are currently one to two bedroom, but the College will be making some modifications in the near future in hopes of offering housing opportunities for to up to 15-20 students who have individual bedrooms and shared common areas. This student housing is in a great location! The apartments are within sight of the College's Melbourne campus and a very safe and short walk from classes.
