ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan says it has its largest student body in school history for the fourth consecutive year.

AnnArbor.com reports (http://bit.ly/ReMAws ) enrollment at the university's Ann Arbor campus is 43,426, up 1.7 percent from fall 2011. The increase comes despite a 1.3 percent decline in freshmen enrollment to 6,171. The number of freshmen the previous two years led to a housing crunch and some larger classes.

Overall, there are 27,979 undergraduates and 15,447 graduate students.

The University of Michigan has said it has seen six consecutive years with a record number of applications.
