COLUMBUS — A high demand for on-campus housing will leave some college students living in hotel rooms temporarily.

But the Capital University students aren’t staying at just any hotel.

The sign says it’s a hotel and conference center, but the Fort Rapids Indoor Water Resort will soon become a temporary dormitory, according to WBNS.

Capital says the situation came about due to strong enrollment and high demand for living on campus. The school says it felt Fort Rapids would be a better option until more beds open.

In the first two to three weeks after classes start, Capital typically sees about 50 beds become available.

Until then, about 30 students will be calling the resort home, with free access to the water slides.
