(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University officials say there are more students signed up for campus housing than the amount of available beds the school has on its Bloomington campus.

That means more than 225 freshmen currently have "pending" room assignments as the beginning of the fall semester nears. The school's vice provost for strategic initiatives says the problem resulted from a large freshman class of as many as 7,900 students, combined with residence hall renovations.

He tells The Bloomington Herald Times that he's hesitant to refer to the problem as a shortage, because it's not unusual and the school has always been able to accommodate students in the past.

He says the students with pending room assignments will stay temporarily in dorm lounges or they'll move into a Willkie residence hall tower.
