New UVA dorm should be ready for arriving first-years

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Officials at the University of Virginia say that while the college overshot its target first-year enrollments, its facilities are ready for the additional students.

The Daily Progress reports UVA was expecting to enroll 3,924 students for the Class of 2023, slightly higher than its target of 3,750.

Gay Perez is UVA’s director of housing. Perez says there are are 6,650 beds available for undergraduate housing and as of last week 6,620 were full.

UVA’s newest dorm, Bond House, is included in that count. It got slightly behind schedule but is expected to be finished by move-in weekend.

At Virginia Tech, an over-enrollment has prompted the college to lease space from local hotels and ask some students to consider deferring admission.
