Abstract

Studies of the relation of gender to university accessibility produce mixed results that call the very definition of "accessibility" into question. This study focuses on how gender mediates students' satisfaction with their university (a key factor in student retention). The study concludes that behavioural and attitudinal operationalizations of accessibility can lead to contradictory results and explores the practical implications of these findings for university administrators and researchers.
