AbstractAs universities allow students greater freedom of choice, a larger percentage of students are choosing private rather than institutional living. Thus, many vacancies are occurring in university-owned housing, resulting in substantial revenue losses for the institutions. In an attempt to resolve this situation, college personnel workers must ask themselves the following questions: What factors should constitute the basis for residence hall reorganization? What are the appropriate rules and regulations for residence hall reorganization? What are the functions of student house government and the residence hall staff?
