The University of Illinois' main campus in Urbana-Champaign has experienced record enrollment this year.

The university released its 10-day attendance figures Tuesday, showing 42,606 students are enrolled - up more than 600 from the 2010-2011 academic year.

University spokeswoman Robin Kaler told the Champaign News-Gazette that 31,932 students are undergraduates, 9,551 are graduate students and 1,123 are professional students.

The Liberal Arts and Sciences school is the university's largest, with 11,405 undergraduates and 2,484 graduate students.

Kaler said the numbers may be slightly different in a report to be released soon by campus administration.
