Feature Landmark
Our Pride, Our Future!


Named after North Carolina’s 62nd governor, William Kerr Scott, this residence hall was designed to house 1,100 male students to relieve a housing shortage. It was completed in 1951 for a total cost of $2 million and featured 505 rooms for students and three apartments for faculty supervisors in buildings A, B and C.

For many years, Scott Hall was one of the largest buildings on South campus. It was called home by some of the university’s most notable alumni including North Carolina Supreme Court Justice Henry Frye, NFL Hall of Famer Elvin Bethea, Rev. Jesse Jackson, former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. and most notably Willie Grimes and the A&T Four Ezell Blair Jr. (Jibreel Khazan), Joseph McNeil, Franklin McCain and David Richmond.

Blair and McNeil shared room 2128 where the four freshmen finalized their plans to jumpstart the historic sit-in movement during the civil rights movement. The window and frame of that room has been preserved and is now a part of a replica of the room in the International Civil Rights Center and Museum in Downtown Greensboro.
Scott Hall was torn down on July 11, 2004.
