Northwestern Michigan College (NMC) is leasing out a motel for a year to meet the growing demand for student housing.
NMC's board approved the year-long lease of the Shadowland Motel during the last week of July.
The motel is located adjacent to the school on Front & Munson and close to their student dorms.
There was a need to house students, so the board thought this would be good timing to lease a motel after the summer tourist season.
Just o ver two weeks after the approval, all 24 units filled up.
There is now officially no vacancy for this student housing option.
T he board will be signing the lease this week.
