Planning Types: Campus Planning

This is the last of seven articles published in the April, June, and August issues of Planning, which have addressed the alternatives available to institutions of higher education in meeting the space needs of new programs and new attitudes, as well as a wider constituency, without resorting to new building. Administrators are finding ways to restructure campus housing in order to reflect shifting student attitudes to their college living environment. A review of general approaches is supplemented by examples selected from a group of ten in-depth case studies that are available on request from Educational Facilities Laboratories, 477 Madison Avenue, New York, N.Y., 10022. The information for this article and the complementary case studies was developed by Erman B. Striner under a project funded by Educational Facilities Laboratories.
