This research project seeks to answer the question of “What factors are responsible for the housing crunch at Marquette University?” and how can we, as a university, find a feasible and responsible solution to this problem. Through research, data analysis, interviews and my own experience of housing and its shortcomings at Marquette University, this project has been eye-opening about the long-term consequences of Marquette’s housing storage as well as the opportunity that the university has to use this housing shortage to solve a multitude of problems that it’s been facing.
