Beginning in the mid-1960s, Granville Towers, a privately-owned dormitory, offered alternative housing for many students who would otherwise be assigned to live on South Campus. The economic barrier for Black or white students moving to Granville Towers was considerable and contributed to Granville’s almost immediate attainment of its enduring status as a dormitory for wealthy white students, which kept out Black students through discrimination, expense, and reputation.
