Akers Hall

East Neighborhood

Akers Hall is known by Spartans for its completely unique, apartment-like living experience that features two-bedroom suites, a separate living/study area and a bathroom shared only by suite occupants. The hall is home to The Edge dining hall.

Fun fact: Akers Hall is named after Forest H. Akers, an MSU student from the early 1900s.
