Notes
Survey number HABS ID-122-F
Building/structure dates: 1935 initial construction
Significance: Designed as a temporary structure to accommodate the swelling enrollment of the blossoming University of Idaho, the University Classroom Building (UCB) came to hold a permanent spot in the hearts of many students, staff, faculty and administrators. Perhaps because it was an unpretentious frame structure, looking much like a typical family dwelling, the UCB seemed to have suited the purposes of its occupants exceptionally well, especially in the latter years of its life. During the 1930s the UCB was constructed to provide space for the academic pursuits of Idaho's youth. Like the University's Learning Resource Center, another UCB occupant, the Women's Center, sought to create a welcoming and accepting atmosphere for its targeted clientele. The origins of the Women's Center on the University of Idaho campus can be traced to the social activism of the 1960s and early 1970s...
