This thesis peruses the programmatic elements that are considered and implemented by designers and administrators and whether these elements contribute to creating successful residential campus courtyards in the southeast United States. A web-based survey questionnaire was administered to designers and administrators who have been involved in projects that were built in the region. Based on literature, site observations, and the results of the survey the researcher illustrates which program elements were the most important, as well as whether each element was implemented on site and why.
