Macdonough Hall

Macdonough Hall is one of the oldest buildings on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus. It is a red brick Georgian, four-story, H-shaped building housing both men and women and divided into east and west wings.

Macdonough Hall

Dedicated on October 2, 1951, Macdonough Hall was named in honor of Commodore Thomas Macdonough, who fought in the War of 1812. He was the commander in charge of the American forces who were victorious over the British in the Battle of Plattsburgh.

On the first floor, play pool or ping pong or watch TV in a spacious lounge. You’ll also find the main floor kitchen, the community director’s office and the hall office. Vending machines are conveniently located in the lower-level lobby and a bike room is located near the west service entrance. The lower level also houses a large study lounge and a computer lab.

Washers and dryers are conveniently located on both east and west wings, with all floors being serviced by elevators and newly renovated kitchenettes. Three automotive charging stations were installed in the east side parking area for charging electric cars.

A Great Location
