Renovations at Michigan State's Landon Hall Have Been Completed


Landon Hall has completed its first full renovation since opening its doors in 1947. The renovated dining service, Heritage Commons extends through three easily accessible levels, each with its own unique, classic design. The specialty concept restaurants on the main floor offer a wide variety of menu selections to appeal to every palate. The second level showcases dining with a classic library setting paying tribute to Linda Landon as the university’s first female instructor and a librarian. It features half-booth seating as well as tables and chairs. To embrace the ambiance of a library, hardwood bookshelves are prominent throughout this level. The second level also features the Ivy Room, a private dining room. The third level offers guests an intimate dining setting, furnished with traditional tables and chairs. With all three levels combined, the seating has nearly doubled from 191 seats before the renovation, to approximately 350 seats.

Heritage Commons serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily from 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. As part of MSU RHS’ commitment to sustainability, Heritage Commons is a trayless dining hall. Students will be able to get a complete meal at each of the venues, which will include an entrée and various sides.

Landon Hall has received upgrades for its residents as well. Landon, a popular choice for music majors and students trained in the arts, now has four private, soundproof music practice rooms. A grand piano will be available for student use in each. More studying and gathering space has been added in the residential living wings. The building is now accessible with the installation of elevators and sprinklers were added to bring the building up to code with fire safety. Wireless internet access has been installed throughout Landon Hall, and kitchenettes are on each floor in the living wings. Community bathrooms, carpet, lighting, paint, heating and vents, windows, blinds and furnishings have all been updated in the hall.
