Holden Hall

South Neighborhood

Located in South Neighborhood, Holden Hall opened in 1967 and is named after James and Lynelle Holden. James became a State Agricultural student in 1889. Recently renovated in 2009, the hall is known for its bold splashes of color and the "fish bowl lounge," which many Spartans consider the best study space on campus. Holden Hall is also home to the Academic Scholars Program, the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) and the High School Equivalency Program (HEP).
