ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Hundreds of midshipmen from the U.S. Naval Academy will live in dormitories at the nearby St. John’s College this fall, freeing up space at the academy for quarantine and isolation requirements that may be needed, the academy said Monday.

The two schools reached an agreement that will see 375 midshipmen move from Bancroft Hall to dorms at St. John’s for the fall semester.
