There are ten dormitories on the University quadrangles. Two of these are reserved for the students of the Divinity School, and five are for women. A University House is organized in each dormitory; each House has a Head, appointed by the President of the University, and a House Committee, elected by the members; also a House Counselor, selected from the Faculties of the University by the members of the House. The membership of the House is determined by election, and each House is self-governing under the general control of the University Council.

The cost of rooms in the dormitories is from $20 to $74 per quarter of twelve weeks. This includes heat, light, and care. Each hall for women has separate dining-hall and parlors. The cost of table board in these halls is $4.50 per week.

All applications for rooms, or for information concerning rooms and board within the quadrangles, should be made to the Registrar. For further details, see special circulars as to rooms and board, which will be sent on application.

The following table will furnish an estimate of the annual expenses for thirty-six weeks of a student in the University, residing within the quadrangles:

[blocks in formation]

It is believed that students who find it necessary to reduce expenses below the lowest of these estimates can do so. By application to the Housing Inspector, rooms outside the quadrangles, furnished, with heat, light, and care, may be obtained at from $1.50 a week upward. This rate is obtainable, as a rule, when two or more students room together. Room and board in private houses is offered from $6 per week upward. The Men's Commons, Hutchinson Hall, offers to students meals à la carte. Lexington Commons, for women, offers meals à la carte during the Autumn, Winter, and Spring Quarters. During the Summer Quarter the Men's Commons are open to both men and women. A list of approved boarding-places outside the quadrangles is kept on file at the Information Office, Cobb Lecture Hall, and information regarding them may there be obtained.
