Moore Hall is a co-ed residence hall at Kansas State University. It is located on the East side of Kansas State's Manhattan, Kansas campus in the North-West corner of the Derby Complex, north of West Hall and west of Haymaker Hall. It is known for its Leadership Studies and Business cluster floors. [1] After the end of the Spring semester, students typically move out of the halls, but Moore provides residency for year-round students along with Haymaker Hall. Some return to live there another year while others move on to live off-campus or in fraternities and sororities.

History[edit]

It was named after Dean Helen Moore, the first Dean of Women at Kansas State University.

In 2005, Moore was paired with Marlatt Hall for homecoming and the pairing was the overall champion in the residence hall division.

Moore has a refurnished lobby with plenty of seating, tables, an aquarium, and computers. There is a gameroom, television room, exercise and weight room.

Moore along with Van Zile are the only halls to have a small convenience store in its lobby, where drinks, frozen food, snacks and toiletries can be purchased by residents 24 hours a day.
