800 San Jose State students unable to move into new dorms
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KTVU) - This weekend, 800 freshmen at San Jose State University are temporarily moving into dorms that are set to be demolished, instead of the brand new dorm they were assigned to.
Ann Rubin met one student that is being displaced to one of the older dorms. Some students describe the older buildings as "terrible" and "cramped".
The university says the new dorm is still under construction, and it won't be ready for another four weeks.
They say construction was delayed because the building required more tests to meet the state building code.
Some students say they're disappointed because the temporary dorms are old and dirty.
The university says crews worked double shifts for months to minimize the impact.
