Shortage of dorms has UW-Eau Claire students living in hotels
Once again this fall, a shortage of dorm space has hundreds of Wisconsin college students living elsewhere.
At the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, almost 230 students are staying in two hotels, because more upper-classmen than expected decided to keep living on-campus.
Sixty-six freshmen are among those sent to hotels.
Eau Claire housing director Chuck Major says they still get the normal dorm services - and it still resembles a dorm-type atmosphere.
