ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. (WJZ) — Living in luxury while in college. That will be the answer to a moldy, smelly problem at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.

Vic Carter reports at the waterfront campus in St. Mary’s City, a rented cruise ship will be turned into a dorm.

You can’t see the mold but students say you can certainly smell it. It’s in the ceiling.

It’s so bad that students were moved out of the dorms to hotels more than 20 miles from campus.

“If I was one of those students, I’d be pissed. It’s far. It’s like a 40-minute commute,” said Randall Hause, St. Mary’s sophomore.

School officials have been scrambling for a better solution. Enter the Voyager, a luxury cruise ship that will dock on Friday on the St. Mary’s River. This weekend, 250 students will make the move.

“They’ll have the full run of the ship,” said Dr. Joe Urgo, President.

“I think it’s pretty sweet,” said Fletcher Sims, student.

Another plus for the school: it will cost less than all those hotel rooms.

School administrators will do their best to help students make the move to their new digs and they hope to have the mold problem resolved before next semester.
