A new proposal would require sophomores struggling with their studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to live in dormitories, helping the university fill some empty dorm beds.

University of Nebraska Regent Tim Clare said that requiring sophomores on academic probation to live in the dorms would help the students as well as raise dorm occupancy in a year when there are fewer students taking classes. As it stands now, only freshmen must live on campus.

UNL spokeswoman Kelly Bartling says the university would consider the proposal only as a way to raise academic performance and quality of life, not as a means to putting paying students into empty beds.

University enrollment this fall is nearly 400 students under fall 2011.
