North Neighborhood

Filled with classic ivy-covered halls, beautiful woodwork and plentiful storage space

North Neighborhood combines what were formerly known as Red Cedar and West Circle Complexes, stretching just north of the Red Cedar River and alongside Michigan and Grand River avenues on what was MSU’s original campus boundary.

The North Neighborhood halls (Abbot, Campbell, Gilchrist, Landon, Mason, Mayo, Phillips, Snyder, Williams and Yakeley) are the oldest residence halls on campus and feature traditional collegiate-style architecture and community-style bathrooms. Yakeley Hall is one of two female-only residence halls on campus. Mason-Abbott offers an Honors College living-learning option, and Snyder-Phillips Hall is home to the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities (RCAH), one of MSU’s three degree-granting residential colleges.

Close proximity to the MSU Auditorium, Broad College of Business, Kresge Art Center, College of Music and the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum make this the perfect neighborhood for a short walk to the MSU Library or class for many areas of study. Just steps away from the halls surrounding West Circle, the MSU Union serves as the engagement center for the neighborhood, housing a writing center, academic advising, a food court, student clubs and so much more. Sculpture and art are also tucked away in surprising locations throughout the neighborhood.
