Housing for an incoming first year

<p>I am inquiring on behalf of a friend whose D will attend IUPUI this fall. Her D did not apply for housing until June and has been waitlisted. I hear there is a housing crunch at IUPUI, and my friend is hesitant to allow D to live off campus during her freshman year. It seems many students move off campus after freshman year. How common is it to move off the housing waitlist into a dorm room as a freshman?</p>
