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 dorm 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.
