Oldest Building: Mackay Hall (construction began in 1886, occupied in 1893)

Mackay Hall, placed on the National Register of Historic Places, houses the University’s administrative offices, as well as classrooms. It was started in 1886 with the help of students who quarried the stone from the school’s land, carried it to the site and helped to build the structure as a means of earning their tuition. With its clock tower overlooking the residence halls, classrooms and other more modern facilities around it, Mackay Hall has become the symbol of the University.
