About 150 ULL students will be checking into a hotel next week instead of a dormitory.
The university has booked an entire floor and a half of the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Pinhook Road for the fall
semester.  University spokeswoman Christine Payton said the school has an overflow of students
wanting to live on campus.  The university is building two new dorms and plans to renovate three
others.  Payton said more than 2,000 students will be living on ULL's campus when the fall semester
starts Aug. 22, and at least 100 more are on a standby.
