COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – The University of Missouri says it’s planning to close two more dorms on the Columbia campus because of a drop in residency.

KMBC-TV reports cites in a decrease in the number of students requiring housing at the campus for deciding to no longer offer space at the Respect or Excellence residence halls.

The university says it can reopen those dorms later if demand requires.

The university announced in March that it would be closing two residence halls scheduled for demolition ahead of schedule because of declining enrollment.

The Respect and Excellence halls opened in 2004 and together house more than 300 students.
