Becky Bacot Hall

Freshman Women and Men


Becky Bacot HallHistory - Built in 1966, Becky Bacot Hall is a freshman residence hall named after the late daughter of a prominent Methodist couple. Bacot Hall is located on the North Side of campus and is near the Maurice H. Hall Activities Center (which houses the campus gym), Olin Hall (Millsaps' science building), and the Campbell College Center (where the cafeteria and campus coffee shop are located). 


Design - Bacot is located directly between Sanderson and Franklin Halls and stands out with its four-wing design. Students are housed on one of three floors, and each wing houses up to 16 residents.

Each room in Bacot Hall is divided by a dual closet flanked by wooden dressers; the rooms each feature two desks, chairs, shelving, and standard twin beds (with a limited number of twin XL mattresses available by request). As the rooms in Bacot are tiled, students are encouraged to bring their own area rugs.
