Of Abandoned Staff Quarters in Public Universities

Passed by new construction work inside the campus of a local University, which will remain un-named for specific reasons.

And after a while, also passed by some old residential houses meant for staff that lay abandoned. Apparently so many of them are uninhabitable and some have been overtaken by mother nature and are now homes for rare flora and fauna. While the number of staff queuing up for houses is in hundreds and growing.

I guess the problem is not building enough but rather the lack of maintenance. Or maybe it is cheaper to tear down these decade old houses and build new ones on the same place rather than repairing them.

I simply have no idea.
