Built as a private home for Dr. and Mrs. Wellesley P. Coddington, the property originally included a carriage house. The interior of the home was finished with white and Georgia pine. In 1944, SU purchased the property from the Coddington's son, Rev. Herbert G. Coddington. It first served as student residences, Parsons Cottage for women and Whitman House for men, then the home of Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority. In 2002, the house was extensively renovated to become the new home of the Division of International Programs Abroad (DIPA), later known as SU Abroad.
