Dartmouth offers cash for students to move off campus
Dartmouth College is providing up to $1 million to encourage students to move off campus to ease an on-campus housing crunch this fall.
Students can opt to have their names included in a one-time lottery for $5,000 to encourage as many as 200 returning students to live off campus, Mike Wooten, associate dean of residential life, said in an email to students who are on a housing waitlist.
Dartmouth is shifting some of its larger doubles to triples and converting lounges to student rooms where possible, but that isn’t enough to alleviate the housing crunch, Wooten said in the email.
