Cartmell Hall

Photo: Cartmell HallDesignation: First year student housing

Opened in 1969 as an all-male residence hall, Cartmell Hall was named in honor of Maysville native, Dr. William H. Cartmell, a former Chairman of the Board of Regents. Prior to being named in honor of Dr. Cartmell, the residence hall was referred to as "Men's #7." During the 70's and 80's, many MSU fraternities had designated floors in Cartmell Hall. In 1985, Cartmell Hall was converted to a co-ed facility. The sixteen-story, high-rise, air- conditioned hall is a double occupancy, community bath facility housing 508 residents. Each room is furnished with mini-blinds, beds, study desks and chairs, closets, bulletin boards, mirrors with lights over the top, and cable television jack.
