Iowa State University is offering up cash to students who are willing to move out of its dorms.

Monday we told you about ISU facing record enrollment this fall and that’s forcing university officials to look for alternative housing for on campus students. The university is converting lounges and study rooms into student housing and has even leased two apartment buildings for students.

The university is offering a financial incentive to returning upperclassman to leave the dorms. They were offered a $500 credit but now that’s been upped to $1,000.

Nearly 1,000 more students are expected to live on campus this year compared to last fall.
