History

During the 1960's, USF underwent a transformative phase during which several major construction projects commenced. One of the residence halls constructed during that period was Gillson Hall, which funded by and dedicated to George Gillson, a former USF regent. Since its opening, Gillson has been the home to generations of USF students and has undergone several renovations. In addition to being a residence hall, it is also home to the office of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).
