University of Mississippi: Dormitories – University MS

Description

These three dormitories were constructed in Georgian Revival style as Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works Mississippi project 1216-DS. The buildings were dedicated October 21-22, 1938, along with three other new dorms built on the campus of the University of Mississippi with New Deal funds.

They are currently unoccupied, but are slated for renovation and restoration in the coming year. They will be used as office and classroom space following renovation. They are considered “contributing buildings” due to the “considerable legacy of architecturally significant buildings” in the historic center of the campus (Master Plan 2009, University of Mississippi, p. 35).
