This Day In Daily History

LSA moves in to administration building floors

Oct. 6, 1964 – The College of Literature, Science, and the Arts will receive three floors of the current administration building, expanding its space in research, administration and teaching by 65,000 square feet. The University expects to complete the move by 1966 – part of an effort to ease overcrowding and relocate academic buildings on central campus.

The move will displace offices not directly dealing with academic functions to two new buildings still in the planning stage. Major administrative offices will be moved to a new structure located behind the West Quadrangle Residence Hall on Thompson Street. Another structure on Hoover Street will be erected to house general University services personnel. Both buildings are expected to be completed by the fall of 1966.

While LSA is designated to take over the second, third and fourth floors of the current administration building, the occupants of the first and fifth floors, housing registration and records and the University radio station, respectively, will be allowed to remain.
