Summary

1. As urban universities seek suburban housing for its student population, what variables do campus administrators seek in housing amenities to keep students happy? 

2. How are "town and gown" relationships - or relationships between colleges and the surrounding communities - improved, or worsened, by student housing? 

3. When did privatized student housing suddenly become less taboo in Beantown? 

4. In light of Mount Ida's acquisition by UMass Amherst, what have surrounding universities learned about the need for space and reliable student housing in order to keep admission rates rising? 

5. As Boston works to improve its transit opportunities, is readily-accessible transportation a strong variable for where universities choose to house their students?
