San Diego: Student Housing

Facilities in use at the San Diego campus in 1965 included a 23-man dormitory and 106 residential apartments designed primarily to accommodate married graduate students.

The dormitory was a temporary one located at Camp Matthews; it was operated under the supervision of one resident advisor and incorporated the community kitchen concept.

New residence halls were scheduled for completion in the fall of 1965 and spring of 1966. They would comprise six low-rise buildings housing 440 undergraduate men and women and would function as "language houses." In addition, a new 800-seat cafeteria and recreation center would complement the residence halls. By 1967, 100 new residential apartments and 400 additional residence hall units were planned to be ready for occupancy by San Diego students.
