OP-T2-35: Local Housing
Associate Vice President of Business Services/Community Engagment
Does the institution have incentives or programs to encourage employees to live close to campus?:
A brief description of the incentives or programs:
The university purchases houses adjacent to campus. We rent this housing to faculty and staff members, which serves as an incentive for employees to live near campus. In addition, a recent survey of faculty and staff revealed that over 45% of employees live within five miles of campus. Many live near campus by choice in the large surrounding residential area.
