Abstract
Every year, more and more colleges have a way to set up housing for upcoming freshmen for the school year. But in most cases, housing at ERAU is way more expensive than what is expected of housing at a credible college. For instance, when it rains on campus, Doolittle Hall floods and most of the floors on the hall get really wet and nasty. Another instance of where the price of housing is unacceptable is the mold that appears on top of McKay Hall. Parents pay a lot of money out of pocket just to send their children to school; with incidents like this happening, it makes most people wonder is housing really worth paying 2,000 a semester really an affordable cost? Freshmen ended up paying a lot of money for housing and most of the necessities are not even include in the rooms. Introduction

Every year, high school graduates from all across the U.S open a letter of acceptance into a credible university and the first emotion that hits them is joy. Months past and it’s that time for those students to embark on a new journey in their lives. When they arrive on campus, the first thing that they do is find the room they will be staying in and immediately began to unpack and get settled in their new residence. Most parents receive letters in the mail explaining how much they owe at the end of the semester and the one thing that pops up on the list is the cost of housing per semester. For most parents in the U.S, they already have to worry about paying for classes at ERAU, which cost roughly around $5,000 a class plus meal plans, health center, SGA, and other minor things. The topic of my Analytical Report is to find valid facts on why the housing at ERAU costs so much for what it is worth. Within my report, I will explain the outcomes of why housing has become so expensive and also ways that students have handled the reality of paying for housing. As a freshman that lives in the dorm, I have heard lots of speeches by upperclassman and also alumni that attended ERAU and asked them is housing really worth paying for and the response is always the same, which is it is not worth $2,000. I then continued to ask them why is not worth paying; and the response was that when you live on campus, most of the things that you had back home are not at your disposal, this is a specific time you can talk and specific time you have to stay quiet, and most of the dorms have only one bathroom and you have to share with three other people and in most cases, one of your roommates is possibly not the cleanliness. Within the topic of uncovering why housing is so expensive at ERAU, I will uncover problems such as how housing calculates the prices of housing, the durability and appearance of the residence halls, and also the difference between housing costs and off campus costs. Methodology

By using multiple resources, I have come up with an effective plan of researching this topic to its fullest extent. Within this report, I will examine, explain, and evaluate the housing situation at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. The research I conducted was very informative throughout because it made an unclear topic perfectly clear and concise. This research will explain to the students why housing is expensive and also how housing prices are calculated. Primary Research
