"The greatest problem faced by the College [in the 1930s] was the inadequacy of its physical plant to deal with increased enrollments. In academic year 1933-34 Hastings for the first time in its history limited enrollment; it continued to do so until the end of the decade .... A fourth, smaller classroom was secured in the State Building, but the overcrowding remained severe, and a search was begun in earnest to find new quarters .... [In] 1939-40, [the state appropriation to Hastings] was raised to $20,661 per annum, principally to cover the higher rent and new equipment needed for the new and somewhat larger quarters which the College occupied in May 1938 in the California Building at 515 Van Ness Avenue."
