ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The University of New Mexico says it'll implement its new requirement that incoming freshmen live on campus starting in the fall.

Discussions of the idea began nearly two years ago and the university had planned to implement the requirement last fall but then postponed implementation due to concerns that included increased costs to students and availability of campus services.

The university says the requirement is motivated by benefits that include academic success in grades, retention and graduation rates.

There are multiple exceptions to the requirement. They include students who live with a family member within 30 miles of campus and those who are at least 20 years old at the beginning of the academic year.

Administrators estimate the new requirement will result in 300 additional students living on campus.
