Higgens, E. Eugene; And Others
Based on a survey of higher education institutions in the United States, residence halls data for single students are presented in tabular form. Table 1 presents, for men and women respectively, the student design capacity of sleeping-study rooms, by state and region, for both public and private institutions. Tables 2 (public) and 3 (private) present the mean assignable area (net square feet) per unit of design capacity for components of residence halls for single men, the total mean assignable area, the ratio of total assignable area to total gross area in buildings used exclusively for residence halls, and the computed mean gross area. Tables 4 (public) and 5 (private) show the same information for single women. List A shows, by state, the names and locations of buildings housing single men and women which were reported to have been initially occupied during 1956-57. List B is a bibliography on planning residence halls for single students. (FS)
