36th Annual Maintenance and Operations Cost Study: Colleges

Web Abstract: 
Presents the results of a 2006 study of two- and four-year colleges, revealing that maintenance and operations expenditures averaged 16.4 percent of total expenditures, which is up from 11 percent in 2005. A significant portion of the increase can be attributed to increased energy costs. The survey methodology is described, with numerous tables displaying costs and square footages per FTE student, costs per square foot, historical spending data, types of institutions, types of expenditures, enrollment figures, payroll data, and buildings and grounds statistics
