As many college students prepare for the upcoming fall semester, the last thing anyone wants to deal with is housing issues. For Clark Atlanta University (CAU)  that is exactly what’s going on.

According to WSB-TV, about 150 students waited outside the HBCU’s student center with looming questions surrounding their housing status on Tuesday, August 14. Classes begin on August 15.


First-year students and sophomores are required to live on campus; upperclassmen may choose to live off campus. According to the school’s statement, upperclassmen were required to reserve their housing with a deposit and complete the financial enrollment process by August 1, 2018.

The Office of Student Services and Campus Life, open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., is “working diligently with students to complete their financial enrollment process,” the statement said.

Consequently, the university is being slammed on social media.

Hopefully, this issue is resolved sooner rather than later. It’s a terrible black eye for any university, let alone an HBCU Universiy.
