Crowded non-House upperclass suites will return to normality in many cases next term, Dean Watson disclosed yesterday. Earlier, he had announced that House "double-doubling" would be eliminated where residents of the extracrowded rooms are graduating in February.
Individual rent will return to normal, Watson said, in the House rooms that deconvert.
Suites in Grays, Wigglesworth, and the outside dormitories, all of whose men enter Houses, will be reoccupied at a deconverted figure. Where only one member of such a crowded room moves to a House, his roommates can guarantee themselves the additional space by paying the higher rate. "Otherwise they run the risk that we will fill the vacancy," Watson said.
