Students staying in Laux Hall first semester had to move out last week.

The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse dorm is being shut down in order to do some much needed upgrades to the bathrooms and sprinkler systems.

The school is having trouble housing all of its students but between semesters, there is a sharp decline in those living in the dorms.

Students will also notice upgraded Wi-Fi.
