The present building of the US Rector's Office was designed by construction counselor Rönnebeck in 1885. The building was erected in the years 1886-1888. The facility was erected due to the overcrowded gymnasium at today's Wielkopolska Street 14. The building was the first to be erected on a street that was not marked before.
Above the main entrance to the new building of the "König Wilkhem Gymnasium", a shell-shaped recess was created in which the bust of King William was located. Only the shell has survived to our times. There are two Latin sentences on the facade of the building: "we learn not for school, but for life" and "in a healthy body, healthy spirit".
In 1944, during the Allied air raids, the building was bombed. After the end of the war, the building was rebuilt. After the renovation, the roof structure was significantly simplified. The building was built of red bricks.
Both the former gymnasium buildings have survived to this day - now at Wielkopolska Street 14 is the seat of the Special School Complex. And in the building at Jana Pawła II Street 22a there were successively: primary school, State Educational Institution for Deaf children, Faculty of Physical Education, Teacher Training College, Institute of Physical Culture of the Pedagogical University, Faculty of Natural Sciences of the University of Szczecin, and since 1995, after a thorough renovation, the Rector's Office of the University of Szczecin.
The building was entered on the provincial list of monuments in March 2003.
