New Student Housing

St. Clair County Community College’s new student housing facility – just steps away from classes and campus life in downtown Port Huron – is scheduled to open in August 2018. Referred to as The Dock, housing units will be fully-furnished and will provide up to 80 students with easy access to the area’s great dining and entertainment options, recreation and outdoor activities, and potential employment opportunities with local businesses.

Additionally, all students living in housing will pay in-district tuition rates.
