Housing for New Types of Students. A Report.
Molloy, Larry; And Others
The demographic pattern of college students is changing from the conventional mold of 18 to 24-year-old able-bodied persons. Although the enrollment of 18-year-olds is declining, enrollment increases are occurring among the following constituencies: (1) women students and single women with children, (2) diverse adult students, (3) older students, (4) handicapped students, (5) part-time students, and (6) foreign students. The purpose of this report is to alert college housing officials to who their new students are likely to be and what the students' impact on housing will be. Examples are given of how some colleges and universities have responded to the dual problem of filling academic and residential space and making themselves and their dormitories accessible to new types of students. Information sources are supplied for the programs described. (Author/MLF)
