Fink (Ira) and Associates, Berkeley, CA.
This 13-part report presents the results of a study to determine whether Ketchikan Community College (KCC) should provide student housing over the next 10 years. Section I introduces the purpose of the study, the college, the prevalence of college-supplied student housing at two-year colleges, and study methodology. Section II summarizes the major findings of the study in terms of enrollments, off-campus housing, student characteristics, and housing demand; and provides conclusions and recommendations. Section III presents an analysis of enrollments and enrollment projections, and section IV presents information on the surrounding comunity and available housing, occupancy/vacancy rates, rental rates, and the potential impact of two planned housing projects. Section V contains KCC student profiles in terms of demographics, housing, transportation, and employment; section VI assesses student interest and preferences regarding on-campus housing. Results of an adult population survey and a high school student survey are presented in section VII. Sections VIII, IX, and X look at alternatives and options for KCC's student housing program, estimating on-campus student housing demand; discussing the advantages and disadvantages of residence halls, suite-type housing, single student apartments, and single/married student apartments; and weighing the options of providing no housing assistance, a housing placement service, and student housing. Finally, in section XI, general and specific design recommendations for a housing unit are presented. The survey instruments are appended. (LAL)
