About Spooner Hall

Spooner Hall is centrally located near most of NMU's facilities. Being a relatively small residence hall, they are a close knit community at a hall level.  Spooner is unique because it specifically houses upperclassmen (junior status or higher), and students twenty-one years of age or older.
