Colleges Build Up--and Down--in Search for Parking Space.
Rich, Richard C.
College and University Business, v44 n6 June 1968
A survey which focused on parking problems created by the increase of cars on campus is reported. The information was collected by questionnaire from 27 colleges. Sample responses from the institution are cited to illustrate the varied aspects of the problem, for example, the University of Akron has 8,000 students of which only 10% live on campus; the University of Michigan is completely surrounded by the city of Ann Arbor so that new space for parking is unavailable; Wayne State University at Detroit banks the profit from fees and fines to provide for future parking facilities. Some multilevel parking facilities are located above and/or below ground level with multistory academic, housing, and service facilities built above. The pressures for parking facilities are greatest on the urban campuses. A tabular summary of the data collected is included. (HH)
