Administrative history

Stephenson House was established in 1940 as a male Christian co-operative residence by the Board of Regents in accordance with Trust agreements made by Dr. F.C. Stephenson, a Methodist and later United Church minister and fundraiser. It came under the general supervision of the Board of Stewards, a body that included University officials and House representatives. Originally located at 77 Charles Street, it was moved to St. Mary Street in 1953, then moved back to a different address on Charles Street in 1990 (63 Charles). It became a co-ed residence in 1983. The house at 63 Charles is currently used as Victoria University office space. It's last year as the Stephenson House residence was the 2009-2010 school year.
