Student Housing Crunch


When resident enrollment surpasses bed count, just about everyone suffers. Overflow students are crowded into makeshift lounges and study rooms, nearby hotels, or RA rooms. Resident staff must manage larger-than-expected communities. Even those lucky students who score a standard room with only one roommate still lose out when community space is occupied by unfortunate latecomers. Parents become involved when they feel they’re being short-changed for tuition and fee expenses, or their children are being short-changed on their university experience.
