South Quadrangle opened for occupancy in 1951 as an all-male residence hall. One of the largest housing facilities at U-M, South Quad cost $5.6 million to build. In 1964, South Quad and Markley Hall both became co-educational - half of the men from South Quad went to Markley, and half of the women from Markley moved to South Quad. The individual houses within South Quad are named after distinguished faculty and alumni.
