History - New South Hall, one of the newest residence halls on campus, was built in 1995. It is located in a landscaped setting on the south side of campus, near other upperclassman dorms, Reuben's, and fraternity row. New South Hall also has the largst residential study/lounge area at Millsaps. This area is furnished with couches, chairs, tables, and desks, offering a quiet environment for studying or relaxing. A multipurpose student activities room was added in 2011 and is adjacent to the atrium.
Design - New South Hall, which houses upperclassman students, is separated into two wings. One wing, nicknamed "the hall," features suite-style living, with spacious bedrooms shared by two students each, with four students sharing a bathroom. The other wing, nicknamed "the atrium," also consists of suite-style bedrooms, but includes two added living room areas shared between four students. In these floor plans, each student has his or her own bedroom. Between the two wings, New South comprises more than 48,000 square feet of living space. New South rooms include basic furniture: a desk, chair, dresser, and bed for each occupant. The large rooms make it easy to move in and rearrange furniture, and all rooms have internet access.
