More Clark Atlanta University students assigned rooms


After a rocky start to the semester that may have affected about 150 Clark Atlanta University students, some formerly dormless students have been assigned rooms.

Students were told Wednesday evening that all freshmen and sophomores who met enrollment requirements had been assigned housing by 5 p.m., but it is unclear how many students still need rooms Thursday.

The university has not responded to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's specific questions on the matter.

CAU, which requires freshmen and sophomores to live on campus, said earlier this week it had housing for all students “who are financially enrolled,” yet many students said they were turned away despite being financially enrolled.

Sophomore Asma Alamin, who thought she’d secured campus housing in April but didn’t have a place to stay Wednesday, said the school resolved her housing issue late that day.

CAU’s memo said students in temporary campus housing must meet enrollment obligations by Thursday to get a dorm.

“In addition, we are working with upperclassmen seeking housing to complete the financial enrollment process,” the statement said.
