ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - University of Georgia officials say the school’s residence halls are nearly full as students return to the Athens campus for the beginning of the spring semester.

Stan Jackson, a spokesman for the university’s Division of Student Affairs, said UGA’s housing supply was about 99 percent full as of Friday, when the dorms opened.

The university lists its housing capacity at 7,618 beds in residence halls and 580 more for graduate students and their families in 42 on-campus residence halls and apartment buildings.

Jackson tells The Athens Banner-Herald (http://bit.ly/1AvweWF) that UGA has some students in spaces converted to other uses to serve as temporary housing.

Jackson said the school won’t know how many students are in temporary housing until classes start Monday.
