The Commuting Student Study, Report II: Study Facilities.
Brunt, Judy; Williamson, W. J.
The use of on-campus areas for study purposes by students at the University of Alberta were investigated. Study facilities were assessed according to: use and satisfaction of existing facilities, needs as stated by the students for study areas, discrepancies between the existing facilities and the type of facility the students feel they need. Major findings indicate: (1) the largest amount of students free time on campus was spent studying; (2) students utilize the libraries to a great degree during their free time; (3) students generally seemed satisfied with the existing facilities; (4) students indicated few areas where a "rap session" could take place without encroaching on other students' need for quiet study areas; (5) most students studied at home, but with a relatively low satisfaction level; and (6) resident students reported a high usage of on-campus study facilities. Appendices include related material. Related documents are HE 004 494, HE 004 491, HE 004 493, and HE 004 526. (MJM)
