Reader comment on: What You Get For Ivy League Tuition

The logic is simple it wants to keep people in its housing versus non Harvard owned housing, so it is competing for renters. I wonder if private landlords provide this in furnished apartments serving the Harvard student community.
Of course the modern dorm is a long way from my dorm 1968-1972 but then the kids requirements have increased. Just like back then it was a cafeteria to eat at not food court as today. (Of course back then it was all you can eat for one price because it would have been to complex to do otherwise as computers had to live in glass houses)

The Future of Capitalism replies:
Harvard is probably a bit of an unusual situation in because the vast majority of undergraduates live on campus in Harvard-owned housing on the three-meal meal plan. Yale, too, though off-campus housing would be cheaper in New Haven than in Cambridge.
