ISU students who live on campus have housing option if they plan to caucus

AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State University's Department of Residence will open a floor in Wallace Hall Jan. 2 through 4 for residents to participate in the Jan. 3 Iowa Caucus.

The opportunity is open only to those students who live in ISU housing. Since many students won't have access to their residence halls over the semester break, Wallace Hall will provide a central location for those who want to come back to Ames to participate in the caucuses.

"We believe it is valuable for residents to have the opportunity to participate in this important political process," said Pete Englin, ISU director of residence. "This initiative was raised with the Inter-Residence Hall Association leadership, and while no one had knowledge of students asking for access to the residence halls, they supported our decision to provide this option."

Caucus housing in Wallace will be available for $19.50 per night. Students who do not have contracts with the Department of Residence will need to make other arrangements if they wish to caucus in Ames during the winter break.

Department of Residence staff will communicate this option to students and provide additional directions on how to reserve caucus housing after Thanksgiving break.
