One good way to build a credit history is to get a secured credit card.  To do that, you have to deposit a specific amount of money in the issuer's bank and that will be your credit limit.  The interest rate will be high but you are going to pay the bill in full every statement period and also not use more than 20% of your credit limit.  Check under credit cards at the top of the page or ask your bank or credit union if they have one.
