A handful of California community colleges and universities are on the shortlist to possibly receive the first batch of affordable student housing scholarships in the state.

The California Department of Finance, in a letter to the legislature on Tuesday, recommended that five community colleges, UCLA, UC San Diego, San Francisco State and San Diego State receive a $ 480 million piece to create affordable housing for 3,545 students. Community colleges are Imperial Valley, Fresno City, College of the Siskiyous, Ventura and Sierra.

The final list will be approved by the state legislature in June.

According to the list of recommended projects, the state of San Francisco would receive most of the $ 116.3 million to build new residential housing for 750 students.

“With rental prices in San Francisco, I’m not surprised we made the list,” said Barry Jodatian, associate vice president of capital planning, design and construction for the California State University campus.
