The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has opted not to put a homeless shelter on campus.

The college president said the school would not go forward with the plan after “extensive consideration,” NewsChannel 13’s media partners at the Berkshire Eagle reported.

The North Adams college has been discussing an offer to take part in a state-run program since last year.

The program would relocate homeless families to the Berkshire Towers dormitory, which is currently vacant.
