In July 1964, the University of California Board of Regents authorized the project now known as URBS-The University Residential Building System Project. The initial stage in the development of the building system was the determination of the user requirements for the building type in question. This report is the result of investigation undertaken by a project team whose goals were to identify and provide the information needed for determination of user requirements for student housing. A literature search disclosed minimal available psychological data in the simultaneous observation of activity and space in residence halls. Consequently, reliance was placed on empiricism and intuition. The observations and conclusions presented came from personal interviews with students, faculty, administrators, housing offices, buildings and grounds personnel, and university architects on all University of California campuses and at other universities.
