You Won’t Believe These College Dorm Rooms Of The 1960s
By | September 24, 2018
College dormitories in the 1960s were small, spartan affairs that might look primitive to today's students. College life has changed in so many ways since the 1960s and one of the most noticeable changes is in the dorm room. Today’s newer college dorms can be downright luxurious compared to the cramped, cinder-block squares that the sixties college students lived in. Amenities were scarce, as were members of the opposite sex. A glimpse at some of the uncomfortable college dorm rooms from the 1960s will make you understand why students flocked to the library to study. Despite how inhospitable they seem, college students made the most of dorm life in the sixties.

Living in such close proximity to one’s roommates meant that privacy was non-existent. Students had to sleep, study and change their clothes in front of each other. And one’s belongings were up for grabs, too, since there was little storage space and certainly no locked closets.
