Purdue trustees discuss student housing, identify ways to increase capacity

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind – The Purdue University Board of Trustees on Friday (Feb. 3) indicated that an effort to increase housing capacity is underway so that more undergraduate and graduate students who choose to live in university housing can do so.

“We know that the demand for housing in University Residences is at an all-time high and we will address that,” said Michael Berghoff, trustees chair. “The university has identified options and is examining them.”

Purdue President Mung Chiang announced on Jan. 8 the creation of an action council on student housing and wellbeing, led by Provost Patrick Wolfe and Chief Financial Officer Chris Ruhl.

Updates on progress will be shared with the university and local community as they occur.
