dc.description.abstract There is documented evidence of the need for more student housing at IUPUI in the form of unfulfilled student requests for housing. The Assistant Director of Housing for IUPUI, Mrs. Maggie Dorset, states that at the present time there are twenty to thirty unfulfilled requests for on-campus apartment-type housing. It is her opinion that if more of this type of housing were available, the administration of IUPUI would have no problem renting it. It was determined that in the range of forty to fifty units that could house between two and three students each was needed.Mr. Mike Wagoner, Director of Student Activities for IUPUI, feels tht there is a need to consolidate in a central location several campus organizations that service the student population. At the present time, these functions are in cramped and inadequate locations around campus. They exist next to and inside buildings that share nothing in common with these organizations. There also exist several social clubs and organizations which occupy classrooms for their meetings and have no place in which to store or maintain any private property. Mr. Wagoner feels that it would be advantageous for these organizations to have permanent meeting rooms at some location on campus.Mr. Wagoner and Mrs. Dorset both expressed concern over the lack of decent service facilities for the on-campus student. They are also concerned that, due to this lack of services and a lack of social activities, most students living on campus do so only when classes are in session and go elsewhere for recreation. Basically the quality of life on campus is such that living there is only a convenience and not totally enjoyable.Therefore, the program for this facility includes not only forty to fifty apartments for student, but also offices for student service organizations, student club meeting facilities, services for the student, and hopefully a social life and quality of life that will make the on-campus student more comfortable on campus.
