Central Michigan University will temporarily close 4 residence halls because of low demand

March 18, 2022
The university is projecting that it will have more housing space this fall than it needs on the Mount Pleasant campus.

Central Michigan University says it will temporarily close four residential halls on the Mount Pleasant campus because of low enrollment. 

The university is calling for the North Campus residential community of Larzelere, Robinson, Calkins and Trout halls to be mothballed beginning in the 2022-23 fall semester, reports The Detroit News

About 200 first- and second-year students who were signed up to live in those halls this fall will be relocated to residential facilities on the south side of campus.

Enrollment estimates for the fall semester show that available housing space will exceed student demand for on-campus living.

The university will expand housing options on the south part of campus, and reopen Troutman, Wheeler, and Kulhavi halls

Wheeler Hall was being used for quarantine and isolation space because of Covid. Kulhavi Hall has not been in use because of lower numbers of students. Troutman Hall is newly remodeled.

Campus officials say the housing plan is aimed at enhancing the experience of living on campus after two years of social distancing.

The university is planning renovations in the four residential halls while they are closed. A timeline for reopening the residence halls has not been set.
