Literature Related to College Housing for Adult Undergraduate Students.
Ware, Thomas E., Jr.; Miller, Michael T.
This paper examines the literature on residential life and adult education as it applies to undergraduate housing for non-traditional (adult) students. The literature reviewed focuses on the demographics of the adult student population, adult students as learners, and the student affairs needs of adult students. Although the literature related to adult students on campus has grown substantially during the past decade, research on the adult student from a student affairs viewpoint is limited at best. Professionals dealing with campus activities and student life have begun to respond to the needs of adult student, but research in this area is spartan. Of particular note in the literature is the lack of attention to the lifestyles of adult students, including housing needs, campus involvement, and family relationships. (Contains 32 references.)
