The York University Senior Common Room was established at Glendon Hall in 1963. This Senior Common Room became the Glendon College Common Room in 1966 when the Founders College Senior Common Room opened on the Keele Street campus in that year. This latter establishment was renamed the York University College Faculty Common Room in 1968 and, as new colleges were opened on the campus an umbrella body, the York University Senior Common Room Inc., was established to serve as a license holder and victuals contractor for the several SCR's.

The Senior Common Room Inc. was managed by a five-person Board of Directors who were all regular members of the SCR. The Senior Common Room Inc. was disbanded in 1976.
