Historical Note
The university began construction on Albert Hall in September of 1904. After completion on March 7, 1905, Albert Hall served as an all male dormitory. In 1923 and 1924 Southeast remodeled and refurnished Albert Hall and it was converted to an all women’s dormitory.
Dearmont Hall was built in 1958 to replace the aging Albert Hall that stood on the site. Originally an all female residence hall, it now has both male and female housing by floors, as well as housing Campus Security. Dearmont Hall has its own private enclosed courtyard, and at one time had its own dining hall. The kitchen facilities are now used by the Hospitality Management program as a training lab.
