Posted: Aug 27, 2015 6:45 PM CST
Students moved on to UWM campus on August 27, and 3, 169 freshmen enrolled in UWM this year.
Currently there are 4,300 students are living on campus-undergrad and grad.
This is up from 2,800 a decade ago. This is largely because 3 residence halls have been added in last decade so now that more space is available more students are choosing to return to residence halls after freshmen year.
There was a 20% increase in students coming back to residence halls after freshmen year in past couple of years.
