Twenty-six institutions were surveyed. Findings included the following: (1) total utilization of residence hall facilities (headcount) was 58,054, a decline for the fourth consecutive year and the smallest headcount in the past 10 years; (2) net revenue producing adjusted design capacity also decreased from 1993; (3) the average number of students per resident assistant for the system as a whole remained relatively constant for the past 10 years; (4) percent utilization of net revenue producing adjusted design capacity was 95.8 percent, marginally lower than the previous year of 96 percent; (5) at the University Center at Binghamton, percent utilization surpassed 100 percent and rose to 100.7 percent from 98.7 percent in 1993; (6) percent utilization at colleges of technology and agriculture increased from 96 percent in Fall 1993 to 103.8 percent in 1994; (7) of the institutions surveyed, eight were over-utilized or crowded and one was exactly at capacity.
