Campus housing shortage worsens in the US as Fall approaches

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that campus housing shortages may be exacerbated in the US this Fall due to post-pandemic pent-up demand and an ongoing housing crisis in the country. Universities are finding that they cannot house hundreds of their students, and some, like the University of California at Berkeley, have received backlash for admitting more students than they have housing for. The article highlights a variety of methods that universities are using to tackle the issues, including finding off-campus partners, providing students with funding to live off-campus, finding alumni willing to host incoming students, and building more housing.
