ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A proposal that would require hundreds of additional University of New Mexico first-year students to live in on-campus dorms is being set aside at least for now.

The Albuquerque Journal (https://goo.gl/hTv08e ) reports that the finance and facilities committee of the university Board of Regents shelved the proposal at least temporarily.

University administrators said students who live on campus do better academically in the long run than those who don’t live on campus.

Members of the regents committee cited concerns about increased cost to students and available services in tabling the proposal.

However, committee members indicated a willingness to reconsider the proposal.
