The University of New Haven (UNH) was founded in 1920 as the New Haven YMCA Junior College, a division of Northeastern University. The college offered instruction in business and engineering to local students. The university also owed much to Yale University, for the use of its buildings and laboratories and for the assistance of its faculty and graduate students for nearly forty years.
Because of the growing student demand for day as well as evening courses, the university first built a modern classroom building near East Rock in New Haven in 1958; in the same year it also received state authorization to offer bachelor of science degrees in engineering and business. Outgrowing even its new building, the university acquired the former New Haven County Orphanage complex (now known as Ellis C. Maxcy Hall) in West Haven in 1960. With a campus consisting of three buildings – Maxcy Hall, the Gate House, and a Student Services building – the university embarked on an aggressive building program throughout the 1960s. In 1965 the first building to be completed was the Student Center, now known as Bartels Hall. The construction of Buckman Hall and dormitories followed, and UNH continues to develop its campus to this day.
