Legacy Hall

res halls

Midwestern State University is excited to redefine the student living experience with the addition of Legacy Hall in August 2016. This building, located across from Sunwatcher Village on Louis J. Rodriguez Drive, is designed to house 500 students. Serving as a neighborhood anchor for freshmen and sophomores living on campus, the project has been designed to promote a strong sense of campus community between students, faculty, and staff.


Residential Living Areas

Following a “super-suite” model, students residing in Legacy Hall will live in one of 16 communities throughout the building. Each community houses between 29 and 34 students in a mix of single and double-occupancy rooms. For maximum student comfort, double occupancy rooms include a partial privacy wall.

Private bathrooms are located throughout the community with a ratio of one bathroom for every five students. In addition, each community shares a community lounge and study room. Lounges include full kitchens and space to study and socialize with friends.

Community Learning Spaces

As an anchor for the entire residential community, Legacy Hall offers a number of amenities throughout the first floor to promote academic and social connections. Students have access to:

  • Multipurpose programming spaces
  • Recreational commons
  • An outdoor plaza
  • Postal mailboxes
  • Convenience store


Opportunities for Enhanced Learning

Living Learning Communities

Legacy Hall offers a unique layout to support a number of living-learning communities (LLCs) throughout the building.   LLCs are one way to enhance your experience inside and outside of the classroom. Students enrolled in an LLC are housed together with access to faculty, staff, and programming unique to each program’s interest area.

Residents interested in the new building may consider one of the following four LLCs:

  • PLUGGED-IN (Pre-Nursing)
  • Business
  • First Generation
  • Wellness & Recreation

For a detailed description about living-learning communities on campus and how to apply, visit our LLC page here.



Students are no longer the only members of the campus community calling MSU residence halls home! Beginning in Fall 2016, a member of the Midwestern State University faculty will live in a specially designed apartment within the new building and share the on-campus experience with students through the Faculty-In-Residence Program.

This program creates opportunities for faculty to collaborate with students and promote academic and professional success outside of the classroom. The Faculty Mentor works closely with the Residential Education Team to foster a true living and learning environment across campus.
