Dorm City: College Students Put Pressure on Boston's Housing Market.
Kressel, Shirley
Connection: New England's Journal of Higher Education and Economic Development, v15 n3 p14-17 Win 2001
Describes the critical housing shortage and soaring rents in Boston, Massachusetts, that are exacerbated by the housing policies of the city's institutions of higher education. Boston colleges have accelerated their construction of dormitories, but nearly 107,000 students still live off campus. The issue is not one of student behavior, but of the actual occupancy of scarce housing. (SLD)
