Campus Rewind: Rose Administration Building and Tutwiler Hall

This entry was posted in UA History and tagged , , , , . Bookmark the permalink.

The story of Rose Administration Building, named after a former university president, intersects with that of another prominent building on campus: Tutwiler Hall.

Before the construction of the familiar highrise at the edge of campus, the old Julia Tutwiler Hall¬†stood where Rose is now, beside the President’s Mansion. (Click on any of the images below to view them at a larger size.)

In the late 1960s, the building we know today was built on Bryant Drive.

Once the old Tutwiler Hall on University Blvd was cleared away, construction could begin on Rose Administration.

It wasn’t long before Rose began to see what life was like at the University. Here it is being occupied in a sit-in…the same year it opened!
