There are still 109 students living in overflow housing as of Aug. 17, IU spokesman Chuck Carney said. 

This number is down from Tuesday's count of 153 students living in residence hall lounges instead of a permanent room assignment. Foster, Forest and Teter quads and Eigenmann Hall are currently housing overflow students.

Carney said more rooms are expected to become available, and the number of students in overflow should be down to fewer than 100 by the end of next week. Openings will likely come from people changing their living situations, such as returning students opting to live somewhere other than the residence halls. 

"As those things shake out, we'll know more about what rooms will be open," Carney said.

Carney said another 48 students are also assigned to overflow housing but have yet to show up for move-in.
