MSU Brody Neighborhood

Brody Neighborhood

The Brody Neighborhood is located on the west side of campus just north of the Red Cedar River. Brody is comprised of six residence halls that surround Brody Hall, where many of the neighborhood's common services, including Brody Square dining hall, are located. It also houses the Brody Neighborhood Engagement Center which houses academic, health and wellness, intercultural and residential services.

All residence halls in the Brody Neighborhood feature community-style bathrooms and all halls are co-ed by wing. The halls also feature the largest student rooms on campus and parking just outside of the buildings. Brody is located close to the Spartan athletic facilities and the Breslin Student Events Center. Fitness centers are located in Armstrong, Bailey, Bryan, Butterfield and Rather halls. 

Brody Square offers a wide variety of fresh, flavorful dishes in nine new food venues. The venues include made-to-order stir-fry, freshly made pizzas, smoothies, vegan and vegetarian entrees, made-to-order pasta, made-to-order Southwestern fare, hand-rolled sushi and more. The dining hall also features a demonstration kitchen where students are able to learn the latest in cooking techniques from experienced chefs, like Brody's Executive Chef David Brown. For more menus and location hours, please visit
