A Suggested Reading List for Residential Life and Housing Research

Christopher J. Stipeck


As college campuses continue to house more students, build additional facilities and offer a variety of programmatic options to residents, the  literature becomes equally expansive. A vast array of options exist, but the following references were selected because of the robust review of  research they provide, the practical nature of the content, the exploration of various residential life models and facilities, or to increase an   understanding of the value that intentional programmes add to students’ residential experiences. The selected references are also predominantly books. I would encourage readers to subscribe to the Association of College and University Housing Officers – International (ACUHO‑I) journal, which regularly publishes the latest and most relevant research globally in the field. A brief introduction to the selected literature is provided.
