Guelph students offered residence in hotel

Crunch results from 10 per cent year-over-year growth

Sixty-four University of Guelph students will be staying at the Best Western hotel this year.

Residences are full because more students than usual have accepted admission offers — 10.1 per cent more than last year. The school guarantees residence to all first-year students.

Best Western will rename a wing of the hotel Brock House. Students will pay Guelph the standard double-room rate of $5,640 for the eight-month school year, reports the Guelph Mercury.
