But they also don't need to build thr Taj Mahal as a student center, or luxury apartments either, which all cost far more than the basic concrete block dorms of long ago to sustain and maintain.

They do that--and build fabulous athletic centers, cafeterias, landscaping, job help centers, counseling departments, infirmary--to attract not only students, but their parents. Colleges that don't attract enough students--and alumni money--eventually go under.
