Named in honor of Mary Butler Markley, a distinguished faculty widow who had been active in alumnae affairs, Mary Markley Hall was completed in 1959 at a cost of $6.1 million.  Originally designed to provide housing and dining for approximately 1000 women, Markley Hall's overall layout embodies simplistic and routine arrangements - most resident rooms are doubles.  In 1964, Markley Hall became co-educational.
