Mathews Hall

Front of Mathews Hall

This co-ed residence hall was built in 1962. Located next door to the University Student Union, Mathews Hall is home to over 380 students on campus.

Building Description

The hall has four floors, with a study area on each floor. The lowest level features a kitchen, pool and foosball tables, ping pong, laundry room and a T.V.

Mathews has three living-learning communities; engineering, pre-health professionals and Oyate Yuwitaya Tipi. Students that are a part of the living-learning communities have access to special programs and computers within the hall.

Mathews Hall was named after Hubert B. Mathews, (1892), a former physics department head, dean of engineering and the first secretary of the Alumni Association from Willow Lake, South Dakota. As a student, he was a member of the first SDSU football team to play the University of South Dakota, and was the first King of the Hobos. He returned to SDSU as a physics and chemistry instructor and is credited with organizing the electrical engineering department and engineering division. He served as the vice president and acting president in 1905-1906 and was also a mayor of Brookings.
