Dartmouth College is experiencing an on-campus housing crunch. According to the Valley News, it’s so severe that the school is prepared to spend up to $1 million to encourage returning students to live off-campus.
Each student on Dartmouth’s housing waiting list has been given a chance to include their name in a one-time lottery. As many as 200 students will be chosen, and each will be given $5,000 instead of on-campus housing. Students who aren’t selected in the lottery will remain on the waiting list.
The deadline to enter the lottery is 5:00 p.m. Monday. School administrators will notify the winners on Wednesday.
