At one of the high rises in the area, an estimated 125 people were reportedly packed into a 750-square-foot unit.
This gathering is a direct breach of the Protect Purdue Pledge.
Leaders say at least 12 students are facing disciplinary action which ranges from probation all the way to expulsion.

In it, he said people need to remember to avoid closed spaces, crowded places, and close-contact environments."
Ramirez says a majority of students are following the Protect Purdue Guidelines.
For those that don't, including those that refuse mandatory surveillance testing, warnings and consequences will follow.
