The two new residence halls are four stories high, with a total of 74 apartments.
"We are the pioneers in this," says Shriver. "None of the community colleges have any residential facilities and we are the only state supported two-year college that will be able to house students."
Inside the buildings, each apartment is move-in ready, with its own common living room, bathroom, and that's not all.
"We didn't just want to offer dorm rooms," says Shriver. "They have their own washer and dryer in each apartment, fully furnished kitchen. So, this will be an independent living experience for students."
There are study halls and game rooms.
The college has been promoting it's newest feature and the facilities manager says students are receptive. Shriver says, "We're about 75 to 85 percent filled."
The buildings will be co-ed. The apartments will not.
After years, school officials talking about the possibility of on campus living. It's finally here.
"It's been a phenomenal experience, very exciting," says Shriver. "It sort of feels like home."
If you want to live in one of the apartments it'll cost you about $8,000 for one school year.
The project will be completely finished by the end of this month..
