WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue students are already camping out to receive housing for next year.
The 12-year-tradition has students waiting for what they call the best apartments on campus.
Students say they are close to campus and to nightlife.
Basham Apartments has 80 units available.
They are first come, first serve.
The apartment hunters have to camp out because there's a random role call.
If you aren't in line, then you may lose your spot and potentially lose out on the apartment.
One Purdue junior was a little worried what his parents had to say.
"My mom being a nurse, I don't know if she would appreciate this cause she's always concerned about my health. But my parents don't know I'm camping out currently."
This weekend the students figure out if they receive their first choice apartment.
