North Neighborhood

North Neighborhood combines what were formerly known as Red Cedar and West Circle. It includes Mason/Abbot and Snyder/Phillips halls, just north of the Red Cedar River and Campbell, Gilchrist, Landon, Mayo, Williams and Yakeley halls situated along Michigan and Grand River Avenues on what was MSU’s original campus.

North Neighborhood halls are the oldest residence halls on campus and feature traditional collegiate-style architecture. Fitness centers are located in Snyder and Yakeley halls, and the North Neighborhood Engagement Center is located in the MSU Union on the 2nd floor.

The Residential College in the Arts and Humanities is located in the North Neighborhood as well, occupying Snyder and Phillips Halls.
