Housing Survey. Campus Housing: Finding the Balance
O'Connor, Shannon
College Planning & Management
Depending on where you look for statistics, the number of students enrolling in colleges or universities is increasing, decreasing or remaining the about the same. Regardless of those trends, campus housing is a marketing tool for institutions looking to draw students to and keep them on campus. Schools need to offer sufficient beds and accompanying amenities. Too much real estate tied up in residence halls that are under-occupied is a drain on budgets and resources, but not having sufficient space for potential and current students might cause those students to move along to an institution that can meet their desires as well as their needs. "College Planning & Management" recently surveyed college and university housing administrators to find out what challenges they are facing, the state of their facilities, and what improvements they would like to see in their residential life programs and resources. This document presents some of the results of that survey.
