York College closes May 1 on the purchase of Mahoney House, a five-minute walk from the campus. The building will provide residential housing for students starting January 2022.

The building had served as an assisted living facility since it was built in 1985 but was closed by its corporate operator in late 2020. The college will renovate the interior and expand the parking lot during the next several months. When complete, it will be able to house up to 78 students.
