For the first time in its history, Eastern Florida State College will have student housing on its Melbourne campus. The college’s Board of Trustees announced they approved the project Monday and will begin construction on 10-acres of college-owned property, that was the former site of Brevard County’s Wickham Park Pavilion. The county used the property under a 30-year lease with EFSC that ended in December 2017.
Funding for the approximately $5.2 million project will come from non-state appropriated money collected from college business activities such as leasing cell towers on its campuses, according to college officials.
No money from student tuition will be used.
