University of Wyoming eyes requiring more students to live on campus

University of Wyoming administrators are considering asking the Board of Trustees to revise the school’s housing policy to require all incoming freshmen living more than 30 miles outside of Laramie to live on campus.

Currently, students from Cheyenne, Rock River and Medicine Bow are all exempted from UW’s freshman dormitory requirement.

Freshmen who plan to live within a 60-mile driving distance of Laramie are not required to live on campus — assuming they live with parents, grandparents or legal guardians. Freshmen are also allow to live on campus if they live at property purchased by parents, though the proposed plan by UW administrators would eliminate that exception.

UW trustee John McKinley said the full board of trustees still not reviewed the proposal, but he said some version of the idea is likely to be presented at the board’s November meeting.

1. The article begins as sounding controlling, but

the rest of the content indicates the ideas present opportunities for students to live in learning environments based on their majors. An example they gave was a dorm for women in STEM majors. This might be helpful in preventing problems between roommates if their majors are similar in level of discipline, such as looking for top grades in a biochemistry major and planning to attend med school.
