Owen Hall

River Trail Neighborhood

Owen Hall is known by Spartans as the ideal spot for graduate students, professional students and undergraduate upperclassmen who desire a living environment conducive to study. All rooms in Owen Hall are single rooms. The hall is home to a Sparty’s Refresh and the allergen-free Thrive dining hall. Students living in Owen Hall have the option to choose a dining plan, but this is not required.

Residents can choose from two different term options: traditional OR extended term. The traditional term aligns with the MSU semester calendar and runs August 25 - December 13 and January 5 - May 1. The extended term is an option for students who need to stay outside of the traditional term dates. The extended term runs August 8 - May 8. Any student that will need to arrive before August 25, stay during winter break or stay past May 1 has to select the extended term housing contract.

Fun fact: Owen Hall is named after Floyd Owen, class of 1902, who provided part of the funding to build the hall. It was the first co-ed hall with male and female students living in their respective wings.
