Apartment Type College Housing.
Flather, Clifton C.
Through a study of student housing trends, it was found that college students seem to prefer apartment living over dormitory living for several reasons. Thus, students are more and more moving off campuses to rent apartment dwellings that may be unsafe or substandard. Five higher education institutions (Syracuse University, Roberts Wesleyan College, Clarkson College, Rochester Institute of Technology, and University of Rochester) have, since 1965, built apartment dwellings for their students. It was found that one, two, and three bedroom apartments could be constructed for less than the cost of building dormitories on campus. In addition, these housing units afforded more parking facilities for student use, and the need for costly dining hall facilities was greatly reduced. (HS)
