This woman's dorm room from 1898 isn't much different from modern day dorms: Pennants, books, and a chair for studying.
In 1945, single men's housing was $13/month, with bunks and linens furnished. Smoking was banned, but no one told this guy.
Guitar-playing co-eds are nothing new. Note the Russian mural, which reads "Merry Christmas," in this picture from 1958.
This '80s dorm had lots of personal touches, from a poster of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to a Snoopy statuette.
We like what the guys in this 1986 photo did with the place. And the fireplace is a rare luxury for a college dorm.
