Law School Assigns Rooms To 255 Returning Students
Over half of the returning Law students who applied for rooms in University dormitories for next year will be accommodated. Dean Wesley E. Bevins, Jr., of the Law School, announced yesterday that 255 of 420 applications had been accepted.
Acceptance lists were posted this week stating the location and type of room assigned, but actual room assignments will be released later.
The assignments were made in accordance with a new Law School policy whereby the available spaces are divided evenly between returning and incoming students.
Another change is that men who lived in a particular room this year did not retain squatters rights in new assignments, as they had previously. Bevin said the applications were divided about evenly between the five new Graduate Center dormitories and Hastings Hall. Incoming students have received room application blanks by mail. There will be approximately 250 spaces open to them.
Under the new policy, Bevins stated, all Law students will get an opportunity to live in a University dormitory before graduating.
