In 1932 we had permanent buildings for

space for 2,500


1939 there was building


but the enrollment had increased to 3,456.


1946 there were still permanent buildings for only 2,500


but by


using space to over-capacity and through temporary makeshifts
the University of Florida actually enrolled 7,373 students on the
Gainesville campus.
The $5,000,000 of permanent buildings which we are adding,
together with the temporary buildings, will care for a still further
increased enrollment in 1947-1948. But plant expansion is still
urgent. The University needs yet to be met total over $10,000,000
in cost for a permanent plant to provide for 5,000 students. This
is a conservative figure as to minimum future University enroll-


ment.


The natural expansion of state population assures that.


Plans are on foot to care for a major part of the dormitory


needs through a self-liquidating project.


This cares for housing


of students, but educational buildings are another matter.


University of Florida has many colleges.
