About Mason Hall

Mason Hall was dedicated on September 22, 1966, in honor of Ernest S. and Frederick E. Mason. Both were former local businessmen and members of the college council.

Enjoy a View of the Saranac River

Mason Hall is an L-shaped, three story coed building divided into North and East wings.

A main entrance and entrances on both the North and East ends make for easy access to all areas of the building.

Residents living in Mason Hall also enjoy a view of the Saranac River, which flows directly behind the building. The Student Mail Center is located in the basement, accessed through the back of the building. Home to mailboxes for all on-campus students, it provides package delivery and shipping services.


The first floor houses the residence hall director's office, mailroom, pay phones, and a lounge with television and vending machines. In the lower level there is a study lounge, a laundry room which is fully equipped with washers and dryers, and a newly renovated kitchenette area. Both first floor and lower level have functional fireplaces. Mason is unique in that it is the only three story building with study lounges on the second and third floor.
