Medway and Sydenham Hall students held a referendum to decide whether they should fight a proposal to make Medway a co-ed residence, The Gazette reported Feb. 20, 1981.

Fifty-seven per cent of Medway residents and 59 per cent of Sydenham residents rejected the idea of Medway becoming co-ed.

However, Western's Senate committee on residence admissions policies and procedures, the sponsors of the referendum, recommended to Senate that Medway go co-ed in the 1981-82 academic year.

In a residence questionnaire earlier in the year, 60 per cent of Medway and Sydenham students voted in favour of a fully co-ed residence on campus.
