BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Officials at United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck say a lack of housing for students has led to a drop in enrollment.

The school enrolled 395 students for the fall semester, down from 430 last year. President Russ McDonald says that once on-campus housing fills up, students are having trouble finding affordable housing in the Bismarck-Mandan area.

United Tribes is renovating a dormitory to make room for up to 100 additional students, and considering loans to finance new housing.

The college is run by North Dakota tribes.
