Transcript 0$ "WCty 1/eny Oowt vi you're like most young adults you dream of having a place that is all your own. Usually college, and specifically the residence halls, affords you at least a similation. U of H offered four coed residential complexes, each one gaining closer similarity to apartment style living. They were the Quadrangle, Moody Towers, Cougar Place, and Cambridge Oaks. The Quads were built in 1950 and encompass five halls; Law, Bates, Settegast, Oberholtzer, and Taub. There were two-room suites with connecting baths or there are two- and three- person privates. "Besides having my own phone there isn't much else besides the sparse furniture that reminds me of my own/' remarked one Taub resident. The Towers was a high-rise style complex that was built in 1970. Structurally, it resembled, the picture of apartment living; including wall to wall carpeting, air condition ing, phone, and furnishings. The rooms were double occupancy with a few rooms set aside for single occupancy. Each floor had a community lounge with cable T.V. Downstairs there were study halls, a game room, a gym, and the commons ( a large meeting hall that joins the two towers). Cougar Place was designed for upper-level and graduate students in 1981 This complex had individually controlled air conditioning and heat, with sparse furniture, and entrances that open to the outside of the buildings. The newest addition, Cambridge Oaks, was completed in 1990. Although it is privately owned, it is still considered part of the university's on-campus housing. Out of all the residence halls this was the only one that actually was apartment style living. Jennifer Van Akin /he upper-level complex, Cougar Place.
