Mayo Hall

Mayo Hall is located in the North Neighborhood. Built in 1931, Mayo is MSU's oldest residence hall. Originally called “Sylvan Lodge,” it was in a small park, the remains of which can be seen in a group of trees east of the building. The name was deemed inappropriate and the hall was renamed for Mary Mayo, who started women’s courses at MSU. Mayo Hall offers a music living-learning option.
