    CAMPUS COMPARISONS

    During the planning process, the physical campus of IUB was compared to six other university campuses that included two Big Ten Conference schools, two Ivy League schools, one Southeastern Conference campus, and one Big Twelve Conference school. These campuses were chosen primarily for physical commonalities shared with IUB. Comparisons were drawn from a list of common attributes such as population, land area, building area, physical scale, density, parking, and on-campus housing.1

    The bar charts on page 47 summarize IUB relative to density, parking per person, and on-campus housing to the comparison campuses. In general, IUB has a lower campus density overall. The Bloomington campus has more

    parking supply than most of the comparison campuses, suggesting there may be a parking surplus overall on campus. IUB ranks slightly higher than average in the percentage of on-campus housing.

    Of the six campuses in this study, the University of Iowa provided the best comparison case. Iowa and IUB are members of the Big Ten Conference and were founded in the early 19th century shortly after their respective states joined the Union. Their campus and city populations are strikingly similar—with campus populations around 45,000 and city populations in the 60,000-70,000 range. The Iowa and IUB campuses also occupy roughly the same amount of land and built area. Princeton University had the least amount of commonalities with IUB. Princeton is approximately one-fifth the size of IUB in student population and land area; however, Princeton’s compact campus is triple the density of the IUB campus. While both campuses provide one parking space for every two people on campus, Princeton houses almost 70 percent of its student body on campus,

    more than double the rate of IUB. Princeton’s denser footprint accommodates more academic space per student and more on-campus housing opportunities.

    Iowa accomplishes its higher density and parking ratio by encouraging its faculty and staff to carpool through incentive programs, providing remote parking for students living in residence halls, and promoting its campus bus system.

    University of Colorado at Boulder’s parking ratio per person is slightly better than IUB’s at three people per parking space; however, the University of Colorado at Boulder houses fewer students on campus. This is due in part to the bicycle culture in the city of Boulder, which was recently named one of the top bicycling cities by Bicycling Magazine. According to this article, in Boulder, “fourteen percent of all trips are now taken by bike—an almost European figure.”2
