Landon Hall – Dining Renovation, Building Life Safety and Accessibility

Project phase: Archived

Landon and Yakeley Halls are located in the North Neighborhood on the northwestern side of Michigan State University's campus. Michigan State University has completed work to consolidate dining for the residence halls in the North Neighborhood. This project was coordinated with Residential and Hospitality Services Dining Master Plan, which aims to align dining capacities with projected changes in housing capacity. The building was originally constructed in 1947 and required major infrastructure repairs to the electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems to meet current life safety and accessibility code requirements. 

Project details:

  • This project inlcuded the creation of a signature first floor 300 seat dining facility including display cooking venues and changes to the loading dock.
  • An updated fire alarm and fire suppression system throughout the building.
  • Accessibility across first floor level and residential wings, including a select number of student rooms.
  • Power and data connectivity updates in student living wings.
  • Window refurbishment.
  • Community restroom renovation including accessibility.

The design of this project includes sustainable features relating to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.

Landon Hall is located on West Circle Drive in the Residential District.


  • Construction for this project was completed in July 2014.
