This historical report describes the findings of a 1961—1965 survey focused on college and university facilities. The last of a four-part series of reports, this report explores how respondent institutions accommodated enrollment increases, with regards to the construction or acquisition of new facilities. The survey found that over the 5-year period, the participating higher education institutions reported rising enrollment, residential overcrowding, and collective plans to build over 8,000 new facilities at a cost of more than $7.3 billion. This report was prepared for the Office of Education of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.

This report is part of the collection of scanned historical documents available to the public.
