Veterans' VillageUniversity Archives WKU History (2007)
After World War II, Western Kentucky State College (now Western Kentucky University) faced a severe housing shortage for returning veterans. In 1946, President Paul Garrett created Veterans' Village from a variety of government-surplus quonset huts, trailers and prefabricated housing. Veterans' Village provided on-campus housing for married and other non-traditional students until 1976.
