Messina Hall


Messina Hall is named after University of Messina located in Messina, Italy. Founded in 1548 by St. Ignatius of Loyola, the University of Messina was the first Jesuit College in the world. About 35,000 students study at this institution situated on the Northeast tip of Sicily between the mountains and the Strait of Messina across from the tip of mainland Italy.

Messina Hall is a five-story residence hall located in the Winthrop area. The building is comprised of suite-style doubles: two traditional double occupancy rooms joined by a common bathroom. All rooms have cable television capabilities and high speed wireless/wired internet options as well as lounges on each floor. Laundry facilities are located in the building.

On the first floor, students will find a front desk where they can check in guests, a conference room, and a complete communal kitchen. There is limited parking available to residents who apply for and pay for a permit through Campus Transportation; access to the rear gate is also granted by Campus Transportation.
