Completed in 1967, Bursley Hall cost $7.5 million to build.  The U-M Regents authorized the building of Bursley in 1956, but the project was put on hold due to financial constraints.  Bursley is the first University residence hall to implement the "scramble" method of selecting food in the dining area, and to offer soft-serve ice cream and soft drinks on a daily basis.  From its inception, Bursley has been a co-educational facility, with coed living arrangements by corridor commencing in 1971.
