Mizzou to rent out unoccupied dorm rooms amid falling enrollment, budget cuts BY MATT CAMPBELL mcampbell@kcstar.com

Now anyone can have that college dorm experience for just $120 a night.

The University of Missouri will rent out empty rooms this fall for home football weekends and other events at the Columbia campus. …

The offer comes in the context of falling enrollment and budget cuts. Freshman enrollment dropped 23 percent in 2016 and, as of early May, it was down another 16 percent. Earlier this month, UM System President Mun Choi announced $101 million in budget cuts at Mizzou’s four campuses, resulting in the loss of 474 jobs.

“We have taken seven residence halls off-line temporarily due to the drop in enrollment,” Christian Basi, director of the university News Bureau, said Thursday. …

The university will use 12 residence halls for student housing this fall. Of the seven off-line halls, Excellence and Discovery Halls will be offered for weekend rental. … Basi said he is not aware of any other schools offering dorm rentals.
