Princeton, NJ’s Town Topics newspaper has reported on our ongoing Campus Master Plan work.
The article states: “This March, Princeton University offered admission to just 1,939 (7.22 percent) of the 26,641 who applied for the class of 2018. Applications have been rising for the past decade and it seems inevitable that the student body will increase from its current number of some 5,200. The impact of such growth is among the items being examined by Urban Strategies, the firm hired by the University to manage its strategic planning process. Since freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus, it seems likely that more student housing will be needed.
Mr. Durkee pointed out that Urban Strategies will be engaging the Princeton community via a new website and blog which will “seek comment from anyone who would like to be involved.”
