COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio university short on housing says some students will start the school year in temporary, off-campus living quarters with an unusual perk: free access to water slides.
Capital University says Fort Rapids Indoor Water Park and Resort will serve as a temporary dormitory for about 30 students until more rooms become available at the Columbus school.
School spokeswoman Nichole Johnson tells WBNS-TV that Capital had high enrollment and demand for on-campus rooms, causing the student housing squeeze. Johnson says officials decided the water park hotel was a better solution than adding beds to existing rooms or converting storage spaces into dormitory areas.
The university plans to offer the students a shuttle for the 5-mile trip to class from the water park.
