Spencer Hall

Spencer Hall 2018

Part of Jackrabbit Village, Spencer Hall is one of three new residence halls completed in August 2010.

The four floors house 148 students with 21 rooms on each floor — 16 doubles, four singles and a room for a residence hall adviser. By residence hall standards, the rooms are supersized at 204 square feet (basically 20 x 10 feet). They are 44 square feet, or 25 percent, larger than most rooms on campus. Each floor has a dedicated, sound-proof study room, two restrooms, air conditioning, and a living room that includes a full kitchen with full-sized appliances, a fireplace, soft seating, and an electronic gaming area.

Spencer Hall is named after Velva Lu Spencer who earned both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree at SDSU. An enrolled member of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate, she is remembered as an advocate for human rights and for her deep concern for opportunities in higher education for Native American students.
