There may not be as many local motel rooms available in the coming weeks.

Campbellsville University will reserve several rooms at Best Western for the start of the fall semester, which begins Monday, Aug. 24.

According to Dave Walters, CU's vice president for admissions and student services, the university tries every year to make sure it is prepared to accommodate its students.

"They are extremely important to us and we never want to ever find ourselves in a situation where we fall short in having proper accommodations for our students," he said. "We expect record numbers in the residence halls this year - across the board with returning students, new freshmen and international students."
