Shaw Hall

Shaw Hall is part of the River Trail Neighborhood and is conveniently located in the center of campus,  across the street from the CATA Station. Shaw Hall was built in 1950 and is named for Robert Sidney Shaw, MSU’s 11th president who led the University through the Great Depression. Shaw Hall houses The Vista at Shaw, a newly renovated residential dining facility.
