Lindenwood President, George Ayres, asked business mogul Andrew Carnegie, known for his investments in libraries across the country, to help finance the proposed new residence hall.
Located on the heritage side of campus, Ayres Hall was built in 1908 and home to 143 female students. In the early 1990's, the building was renovated, once again, adding an additional 66 beds for female students. The renovated portion of Ayres Hall, along with the basement and 1st floors of the historic side of Ayres, are granted to members of the Delta Zeta and Sigma Sigma Sigma sororities. Delta Zeta and Sigma Sigma Sigma are both wonderful groups of women, and are perfect for residents looking to live the Greek Life collegiate experience. The 2nd and 3rd floors of historic side of Ayres Hall are designated for sophomores, juniors and seniors. The historic side of Ayres consists of single and double rooms with the option of a community or private bathroom. Each resident of Lindenwood University in Ayres is provided with an extra-long twin bed frame, mattress, three-drawer dresser, desk, chair, closet or wardrobe, and high speed internet.
On the backside of Ayres, there is a comfortable lounge furnished with couches, tables, chairs, a microwave, vending machine, and a big screen TV, perfect for dining or studying. Microwaves in individual’s rooms are not permitted; however, students are allowed to have mini-fridges in their rooms. Any additional furniture a resident wishes to bring into their room must be approved by the Residential Community Coordinator of Ayres Hall.
Ayres is complete with all the modern amenities such as air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and has several handicap accessible certified rooms.
Ayres is conveniently located near Spellmann Campus Center, Harmon Hall, Young Hall, and Roemer Hall. We hope this kind of environment sounds exciting to you and we look forward to having you as part of our community soon!
