According to Paul Abramson, an education analyst with New York-based Intelligence for Education, there’s an impressive number of campus housing projects completed in 2013 and 2014. Based on a group of college survey responses received by Abramson, he wrote Demand, aging building spur campus housing boom.” In this article, he notes, “Fifty-two new residence halls in private and public schools to house 19,000 students opened last year or will open this year around the U.S., with a price tag of more than $2 billion.” As national experts in the design of higher education student housing projects, Mackey Mitchell Architects contributed significantly to this recent growth in campus residential facilities.
