Mayo Hall

North Neighborhood

Located in North Neighborhood, Mayo Hall was built in 1931 and is named after Mary Mayo, who started women’s courses at MSU. Known originally as the Sylvan Lodge, the hall was located in a small park, the remains of which can be seen in a group of trees east of the building. Many Spartans consider this hall a favorite because of its long-standing history. Mayo Hall also offers a music living-learning option.
