Horace Mann Hall
Horace Mann Hall is a coed residence hall housing 120 students in single and multiple occupancy rooms. Most students in Horace Mann reside in single occupancy rooms which are typically, but not exclusively, assigned to juniors and seniors. A number of underclassmen also reside in the hall.
The hall is named for the famous educator and legislator who was the founder of the Commonwealth's first teacher training institution which later became Framingham State University.
This six story coed residence hall, divided into two wings, provides living and study facilities for 370 residents in double and multiple occupancy rooms. The First-Year Experience Program is located on the second floor and a "quiet floor" is on the sixth floor of this building.
The ground floor contains a large recreation room with lounge, kitchenette, and meeting rooms for educational and social functions. Other floors contain living quarters, study lounges, and utility areas.
Situated atop Bare Hill, the residence hall is surrounded by an exterior plaza providing an overall view of the campus.
Larned Hall is named for Dorothy Larned, who served as the Dean of Women from 1942 to 1961.
Linsley Hall is three-storied, three-winged, coed residence hall located at the foot of Adams Road. Linsley offers traditional single and double occupancy rooms, as well as six and eight person suites.
It is named after the late James D. Linsley (1936-1970), a popular professor who taught pre-Civil War American history and the history of minorities in America.
The residence opened in September 1971 and went through a major multi-million dollar renovation in 2002. This renovation included the replacement of all windows, installation of a new roof, installation of an elevator, addition of suites, addition of individual heat and air-conditioning units, re-design of all bathrooms, and upgrading of finishes.
