Living Arrangements of College Students: October 1971.
Jennings, Jerry T.
This document presents the results of a survey designed to determine the living arrangements of college students in 1971. The 1971 data are compared with data elicited by a similar survey in 1966, and some comparisons are made with 1958 data. Highlights of the survey findings include: (1) College students were fairly evenly divided in their living arrangements with about one-third living in their own households, one-third living with their parents, and one-third living in college facilities. (2) The women enrolled in college were more likely (29%) to be living in college housing than the men (20%). (3) 94% of all college students who were married and were living with their spouse lived in their own households. (4) Only 56% of the students enrolled in college in October 1971 were living with their parents during the preceding summer. (5) There was some net movement back to the county of residence of parents following college graduation. (Author/HS)
