Opened in 1969 as an all-male residence hall, Cartmell Hall was named in honor of Maysville native, Dr. William H. Cartmell, a former Chairman of the Board of Regents. Prior to being named in honor of Dr. Cartmell, the residence hall was referred to as "Men's #7". During the 70's and 80's, many MSU fraternities had designated floors in Cartmell Hall. In 1985, Cartmell Hall was converted to a co-ed facility. The sixteen-story, high-rise, air- conditioned hall is a double occupancy, community bath facility housing 508 residents is co-ed by alternating floors. A limited number of private rooms are available for upper class male and female residents. Each room is furnished with mini-blinds, beds, study desks and chairs, closets, bulletin boards, mirrors with lights over the top, telephone jack with local service (students will need to provide an analog telephone), TV jack (students will need to provide TV coax cable), and a data port connection. Cartmell Hall rooms received new furnishings during the summer of 2001.
