Governor Pat Quinn opened a new community-based student housing development Thursday in the city's Pilsen neighborhood.

The 6-story residence hall, La Casa Student Housing and Resource Center, will provide local college students with the benefits of on-campus housing. The facility features a computer lab, study rooms and financial advisors to provide career guidance and access to financial services.

"We have to make sure that we have adequate housing," Gov. Pat Quinn said.

The state provided more than $8 million to help build La Casa, which was facilitated by the resurrection project.
