Some Howard University students want answers from campus officials about their housing for the upcoming semester.
Students claim the school has been slow to address who all will be able to live on campus next year.
Freshman Daahna Artis said she paid a $200 deposit to reserve a housing space on campus more than two weeks ago. However, she said the school has yet to offer her choices as to where she can live.
She and other students suspect Howard University does not have enough rooms available for everyone in 2018-2019 school year.
"Basically, I'm homeless right now until I hear further of what housing I can select," Artis said.
WUSA9 reached out to Howard University for answers, but no one offered a response. However, the college has communicated to students through social media.
"There is enough housing on campus to meet students' needs next semester," a Howard University Facebook post reads. "Students who have paid their housing deposit will receive a housing assignment."
But, that explanation has not been enough to calm students' concerns. They held a protest on campus Thursday where they took time to announce their grievances.
Other students have complained they were locked out from the Residential Life office when they tried to get answers to their questions.
"It hurts me to see my friends applying to other schools, trying to think of other routes for their life because of a simple problem such as housing," said Freshman Deja Davenport.
