Central Michigan University will temporarily shutter some dorms next fall

CMU's enrollment had been declining in recent years and it lost more than 4,000 students since the pandemic began.

Central Michigan University is planning to temporarily shutter four residential halls on its north campus next fall due to enrollment projections, officials announced Thursday.

The North Campus residential community of Larzelere, Robinson, Calkins and Trout halls will be temporarily closed.

The announcement was made to the first- and second-year students living in those communities in an email sent by Kathleen Gardner, executive director of student affairs. She said the decision was made based on enrollment estimates for the fall semester which show the university will have more housing than students living on campus.
