Student Residence: Policies, Provision and Regulations. Report on a Survey of Universities, Colleges of Education and Colleges of Technology in the U.K.
Brothers, Joan; Kendall, Michael
Results of a questionnaire sent to 260 British colleges are compiled. Researchers were interested in--(1) the pattern of residential facilities, (2) the policy for the selection of students to reside, (3) the availability of housing to students, (4) the responsibility of the institution for student behavior, and (5) future plans. Two forms of the questionnaire were used, one for colleges and one for universities, with a response of 917. The data was coded into 21 categories according to three types of institutions--(1) universities, (2) regional colleges, and (3) colleges of education. The authors concluded that the results only reflected stated policies, and might not reflect the true implementation of the policy, but that it provided a good background study for future research.
