ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Incoming University of Michigan dormitory residents will find condoms in vending machines alongside snacks and soft drinks.

AnnArbor.com says the 2013-14 is the first full school year with condom-stocked machines in campus dorms. It says they were introduced in place in April, then removed for the summer when children bunk in dorm rooms for summer camps.

University spokesman Peter Logan says students asked housing staff in 2012 to install free condom dispensers in dorm bathrooms.

Logan says housing officials didn't buy that idea but instead opted to add condoms to the vending machine wares. They sell for $1.

Incoming junior Carly Manes says condoms are available free at the U-M Health Service, but students may be too shy to publicly ask for one or may not plan ahead.
