Remainder of students living at hotel move on campus

By Kevin Graham

Congestion, which forced university housing to place 31 students at an off-campus hotel, has finally been alleviated.

The housing department was able to make room assignments for the remaining six students that were in Homestead Studio Suites on University Drive in Auburn Hills last week, according to Jim Zentmeyer, director of University Housing.

Dormitory capacity on campus is 2,100 revenue-generating beds, or beds not reserved for residence hall staff.

A proposal to add roughly 450 beds to campus with the creation of a new residence hall is expected to be on the agenda at Thursday’s Board of Trustees meeting, according to Vice President of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management Mary Beth Snyder.

The Board’s formal session will meet at 2 p.m. at the Anton Frankel Center, OU’s satellite campus at 20 South Main Street in Mount Clemens.
