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.

Building Description

By residence hall standards, the rooms are supersized at 204 square feet (basically 20 x 10 feet), which is 25% 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 houses the Transfer Students Living-Learning Community.

Spencer Hall is named after Velva Lu Spencer who earned both a bachelor's degree in 1986 and a master's degree in 1989 in sociology. 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. From 1988-2003, Spencer served as SDSU's third Native American adviser with remarkable success in retention and graduation of Native American students.
