The Universities Research Park and University Student Apartment (USA) Villages are exploring solutions to a shortage of housing in and around the university campus and Research Park. Built in the 1960s and 1970s, the USA East and West Villages are becoming costlier and more difficult to maintain. USA is the only housing community on campus for U students with young families, graduate and professional students. Research Park is also looking to provide a more complete community through the potential inclusion of housing opportunities for employees of the university or other Research Park companies.
As members of the University of Utah and Research Park communities, your feedback is invaluable in shaping and developing the future lives of Research Park employees, university faculty, staff and most importantly, students. The U is evaluating the demand for future housing options for faculty, staff, students and workforce housing for those employed by the university and in Research Park. While the focus of this study is on housing, future options could also consist of a mixture of uses, including retail, dining and commercial.
The 10-minute survey focuses on participants current housing situations, housing preferences and overall interest in the potential future housing opportunities. Whether you are a current on-campus resident, a single-family homeowner or a renter we want to hear your opinion. Help the U and Research Park plan for the future.
NOTE: This study is in the planning stage and there is no guarantee that it will lead to the construction of future housing. All responses are voluntary and will be confidential. Responses will not be identified by the individual and all data will be aggregated and analyzed as a group. This survey is being conducted by a professional polling company hired by the university.
