Today Denver Seminary is a campus where singles, married couples, and families live, work, and play. The on-campus apartments provide an opportunity for such a community to exist. In 1950 the on-campus life was quite different. Although both male and female students attended the school, only male students were permitted to live on-campus. Married couples also lived off-campus.
An excerpt from the 1950-51 catalog:
"Rooms for single men are provided on the third floor of the Administration Building. These are double rooms and rent for $4.00 a week per student. Each student provides his own linen and blankets and is required to meet his own laundry bills. Bedspreads and pillows are furnished by the Seminary. Meals are served in the Seminary Dining Room at $8.50 for 21 meals.
Living accommodations for married students must be secured outside the Seminary premises since apartment buildings have not yet been procured. However, students have not had much difficulty in securing adequate and comfortable apartments. Apartments with three rooms and bath can be found in Denver ranging in price from $40.00 to $75.00 per month with all utilities paid."
