State Univ. of New York, Albany. Central Staff Office of Institutional Research.
This report presents utilization summary data in the form of 12 tables from all New York State-operated institutions of higher education having residence hall facilities. The tables provide information on such areas as occupancy rates, bed rental information, revenue-producing "other" utilization, and trends in facility utilization from fall 1983 through fall 1992. Findings include the following: (1) fall 1992 utilization of residence hall facilities was reported to be 59,211; (2) trend data indicate that, for 8 of the last 10 years, revenue producing utilization of residence hall for purposes other than resident student occupancy has generally increased; (3) the university centers at Albany, Binghamton, and Stony Brook each showed a decrease in utilization from last year; (4) fall 1992 data reveal that the percent utilization of net revenue producing adjusted design capacity for the University Colleges continued the downward trend noted last year after reaching its highest level in 8 years in fall 1990 (100.8 percent); and (5) of the 26 institutions surveyed, facilities at 16 were under-utilized, and 9 of these 16 were able to generate revenue through utilization other than student occupancy. The appendix contains a state location map for the institutions and a list of other publications concerning school information. (GLR)
