Historical Note

Dormitories for men and women were administered by the Dean of Students for Men and Dean of Students for Women and each had an office Dormitories for Men and Dormitories for Women. Around 1946 the Student Housing office was created in the Dean of Students department.

In 1963 the Division of Residence Hall Student Services was created within the Dean of Students Department and the Housing Assignment Office was disbanded. Additional offices were also created for off-campus housing. In 1964 the name changed to Division of Residence Hall Programs and off campus housing was administered by the Division of Student Activities and Off Campus Housing. In 1978 the name changed to University Housing Programs. In 1993 the name changed to the current name Residence Life.
