FINANCING/DELIVERY

Financing and Ownership Structure

The student housing community is being financed and delivered through a public-private partnership utilizing tax-exempt financing to maximize control and minimize risk.  This is not a college-funded project; rather, it is 100% project debt finance.  The improvements/student housing community will be owned by NCCD (a not-for-profit) until the debt is paid off.  By affiliating with a nationally chartered, not-for-profit owner, the College maintains input into the decision-making process assuring that the student residential experience and the intended academic outcomes are balanced with that of required financial sustainability.

There are provisions requiring that the student housing community be maintained to uphold quality throughout the life of the financing.  Once the debt is paid off, the college will own the student housing community.
