History of Hansen Hall

Hansen Hall is named in honor of Dr. Neils Hansen, who worked at SDSU from 1895 until 1937. He specialized in research and plant breeding. Dr. Hansen established the world’s first greenhouse for the purpose of plant breeding right here at SDSU. One little known fact about Dr. Hansen is that he wrote the words to the school song, “Yellow and Blue”.

The four story hall was built in 1967 and underwent a major refurbishing in the summers of 2003 and 2004. Hansen is located on 11th Street on the west side of campus. Hansen Hall includes a convenience store, which includes hotel options for the residents in the area.
