18th Annual College Construction Report

February 1st, 2013

College administrators worried whether the uncertainties of tax laws or the emphasis on cutting would cause regular donors or governors and state legislators to trim their spending on higher education. It was not a good time for looking ahead and planning confidently for continued growth in college construction programs. The number of identified projects listed as being “on hold; awaiting funding decisions” grew exponentially. Under the circumstances, it is not surprising that college construction completed in 2012 — and projected for 2013 — declined from previous years.


2012 Living on Campus: Special Report on College Housing

June 1st, 2012

Residence halls — or dormitories, as they were once called — used to be places where students could sleep, dress, and study while attending college. They were the simplest of spaces, providing each student a bed, a desk, and a place to keep some clothes. And they were usually the least expensive buildings on campus. Things are different now. Residence halls provide all the comforts of home and, to many students and parents, often more.


17th Annual College Construction Report

February 1st, 2012

The median residence hall reported this year houses 428 students, cost $33M, and encompasses 131,782 sq. ft. Cost per student rose to $78,153 (compared to $69,502 a year ago). Cost per square foot was also up to $201.10, but that actually is lower than it had been in three of the last four years.
