The Philosophy of University Housing
Wallace, James A.
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v38 n2 p94-99 2012
This article examines a stated philosophy of university housing and the philosophy's effect on the facilitation of the personal and intellectual growth of students residing in the residence halls and the development of a sense of community. This particular philosophy governs the housing operations at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. However, its basic tenets can be applied to any university that considers residence hall living a component of its educational offerings.
