With the emergence of off-campus dorms and construction of still newer by the bed properties,campus is viewed as old and outdated and is suffering to compete. • Forty-one residence halls with accommodations for approximately 10,100 students are currently available at Texas A&M University. Of these,30 residence halls with approximately 8,000 spaces are allocated to non-corps students. About 50%-60%of the 8,000 spaces become available(vacant)for new students applying for housing for the fall semester.There are 2,200 spaces allocated to the Corps of Cadets. 25%of undergraduates live on campus. 2004-2005 ENROLLMENT ANALYSIS • Texas A&M University's fall 2004 enrollment includes approximately 44,521 students studying for degrees in 10 academic colleges. "College Station"implies a collegiate influence.Texas A&M University and to a lesser extent,Blinn College in Bryan,have a tremendous impact upon the community. Following Texas A&M's transition from an all-male,military institution,the schools population as well as that of the entire area increased significantly. • Enrollment at Texas A&M is another factor to be taken into account.The fall of 2001 had 44,618 students attending.That's a 1.3%increase from 2000.In the fall of 2002 enrollment went up again to 45,083 total enrollment, a 1.0%increase.But the fall of 2003 was a different story.Total
