WIU to offer students rooms prior to winter storm

Western Illinois University is offering students rooms before the massive winter storm hits the area.

Residence halls do not open until 10 a.m. Sunday; however, if students need to return Saturday evening before the storms, rooms at Olson are available.

The university said the cost for a room is $21.20 per person.

Students should call ahead to reserve a room as students may have to share.

To reserve a room, call 309-298-3500 or stop at the Corbin-Olson information desk.
