Part of the Higher Education General Information Survey is the Current Inventory of College and University Physical Facilities Survey. Highlights of the 1970 survey include: (1) In the fall of 1970, institutions of higher education reported a gross floor area of more than 1.7 billion square feet. About two-thirds of the gross area was classified as assignable. (2) Year-to-year increases in floor area were somewhat smaller in 1970 than in the preceding year. (3) Residential facilities ranked first among all facilities classifications, with about 31 percent of the assignable square feet. Laboratories ranked second, with about 14 percent. Only about 8 percent of all assignable space was reported as classroom facilities. (4) Institutions of higher education reported total capacity of more than 1.9 million in student residence halls and dormitories. The overall occupancy rate was more than 90 percent. (Author/PG)
