Students on Prescott campus move into renovated housing; no similar housing planned for Verde Valley
The Yavapai Community College estimates that about 130 students will be living in the new Marapai residence hall dorm this semester. Another 90 students will be living in the Kachina residence, which was completely renovated last year. There are no student housing plans for the Verde Valley. Source: Prescott Courier.

The Board has refused to construct student housing anywhere outside Prescott. This has been a major barrier to full development of the Verde campus in Clarkdale. It is in part responsible for problems with supporting the Sedona Film School, which was closed by the College this year.
