enrollment and building development history

After World War II to its peak in 1985, the campus enrollment grew at a average rate of nearly 600 new students every year for forty years. Over that same time period the campus facilities grew from one million square feet to nearly ten million square feet. These charts illustrate the growth pattern of a long-lived University on a maturing campus. Continued growth is anticipated and will be incremental as the University pursues infill development on the well-established Amherst campus.
