Wells Hall

Wells Hall

Visit one of the largest academic buildings on campus, the park-adjacent Wells Hall.

Wells Hall is the largest academic building on the MSU campus. It’s divided into four wings and houses the departments of mathematics, English and all of the languages. It also has a Starbucks, another popular gathering spot for students. 

Right outside is People’s Park. Its history goes back to the spring of 1970, when people began setting up tents to explore alternative ways of living. They pooled funds to buy food that they cooked on campfires and they entertained themselves with games, music and political discussions. Today, People’s Park simply provides lots of beautiful outdoor study space for students. 

Wells Hall is also where you’ll find the Campus Center Cinema, which shows recently released movies for free to all MSU students. Plus, hundreds of prospective MSU students visit the hall in the summer for Green and White Days, our most popular open house events of the year! 

People’s Park

In the spring of 1970, people began setting up tents in the space between Wells Hall, the International Center and Erickson Hall. There, they explored alternative ways of living as a community.

Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum

Explore an incredible collection of contemporary art at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum.

The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum — otherwise known to students as the “spaceship,” based on its design by award-winning architect Zaha Hadid — is dedicated to exploring international contemporary culture and ideas through art.  

MSU Broad offers a permanent collection of over 10,000 works and dynamic public programming that features local, national and international artists. In addition, the museum hosts the New in Student Performance series, which showcases performances from MSU students including dance, poetry, film and music. 

Admission is free to the museum, and it’s also a secret study spot for many students on campus. In 2018, MSU opened the Art Lab in a nearby expansion off campus and into the Greater Lansing area. The Art Lab is a community-focused collaborative space where makers, innovators and lifelong learners can connect with opportunities to create and experiment with art. 

A masterpiece of a museum

Breslin Student Events Center

Breslin Student Events Center

Visit the home of MSU basketball, the Breslin Student Events Center.

The Breslin Student Events Center is the place where a lot of important moments happen for Spartans — first-year convocation, graduation convocation and commencement ceremonies for many MSU colleges. As one of the premier facilities in the country, the center is host to more than 250 educational and entertainment events annually. 

Outside, the statue of MSU alum Magic Johnson welcomes fans to the home of Spartan basketball. The Breslin Student Events Center is also where students go to experience one of the most exciting moments in Spartan life by joining the basketball student sections (known as the IZZONE and the Merchant Maniacs) and cheering at home games with their friends. 

The center also houses the MSU Basketball Hall of History, which celebrates the incredible success of Spartan basketball throughout all the eras. The hall showcases trophies and awards from the program and has a tribute to past players in the NBA. 

The Izzone

Named after head coach Tom Izzo, the Izzone is the official student section for the Michigan State men’s basketball team.

Spartan Stadium

Spartan Stadium

Feel the excitement when you visit the home of legendary MSU football — Spartan Stadium!  

Ask any student, and they’ll say it’s one of their favorite places on campus. The Spartan Stadium, home of Michigan State football, ranks as the 20th-largest college-owned structure of its kind (designed solely for football) in the nation and the fifth largest in the Big Ten.

On any regular Saturday in the fall, Spartan Stadium holds more than 75,000 Spartan football fans cheering on our home team to victory. 

Since its opening in 1923, Michigan State has won 70% of its games played in Spartan Stadium. MSU hosted our 500th game at Spartan Stadium in 2013, our team was the Rose Bowl Champions in 2014, and we were the Big Ten Champions and Cotton Bowl Champions in 2015. 

Over the years, millions of dollars have been invested in the quality, expansion and modernization of the stadium — from concessions, seating and bathrooms to new playing surfaces, luxury suites and a campus-wide media center. MSU is proud to have some of the most loyal fans and some of the best game day atmosphere in college football!

Go green! Go white!

Beaumont Tower

Beaumont Tower

Hear the historic bells of the MSU campus at Beaumont Tower.

Beaumont Tower is MSU’s iconic clock tower. Its bells are the beautiful soundtrack of our campus and play on the quarters of every hour. The tower houses a carillon — a musical instrument containing 49 bells, ranging in size from 15 pounds to 2.5 tons.

The tower was built in 1928 as a gift from John Beaumont (Class of 1882) as a tribute to College Hall, the first academic building on campus and the first building in the United States dedicated entirely to the teaching of scientific agriculture. When College Hall collapsed from structural damage, Beaumont Tower was erected both to honor its memory and as a monument to teaching. 

Legend has it that if you kiss your sweetheart in the shadow of the tower, or at midnight in Beaumont courtyard, you will be together forever. 

Always striving

One of the corners at the top of the tower is taller than the others, which is meant to signify that students should reach higher, grow more and strive to be even better every day. Beaumont Tower is a powerful reminder that #SpartansWill.
