Blimling, Gregory S.
Journal of College Student Development, v40 n5 p551-61 Sep-Oct 1999
Originally published in July 1989, uses meta-analysis to integrate and summarize the empirical research from 1966 through 1987 regarding the influence of college residence halls on the academic performance of undergraduate students in the United States. Results indicate that residence halls do not generally exert a major influence on students' academic performance compared with living at home. (Contains 33 references.) (Author/GCP)
