WSU short of dorm rooms as it welcomes largest freshman class

Washington State University faces a shortage of dorm rooms as the Pullman school prepares to welcome the largest freshman class in its history.

More than 4,300 freshmen are expected to fill the school’s residence halls next week, and WSU says more than 230 students remain on a wait list for a place to live.

The school has already reopened Waller Hall, a dormitory that closed in 2015, to accommodate incoming freshman men.

For women, the university will be converting single-student rooms in Orton Hall to house two students, and some dorm rooms have been upped from two students to three. (AP)
