COLUMBUS, Ohio >> A central Ohio university short on housing says some students will start the school year in temporary, off-campus living quarters with an unusual perk: free access to water slides.

Capital University says Fort Rapids Indoor Water Park and Resort will serve as a temporary dormitory for about 30 students until more rooms become available at the Columbus school.

School spokeswoman Nichole Johnson tells WBNS-TV (http://bit.ly/19tPPLD ) that Capital had high enrollment and demand for on-campus rooms, causing the student housing squeeze. Johnson says officials decided the water park hotel was a better solution than adding beds to existing rooms or converting storage spaces into dormitory areas.

The university plans to offer the students a shuttle for the 5-mile trip to class from the water park.
