New residence hall named Marlene Moss Hays Hall in honor of Spencer & Marlene Hays

TCU’s newest residence hall will be named Marlene Moss Hays Hall in honor of Spencer and Marlene Hays for their recent leadership gift.

The building is 61,000 square-feet and four stories tall. The facility will accommodate approximately 160 students with suite-style housing including a combination of two to four bed suites. The residence hall is expected to achieve a LEED Silver certification. The building opened this month.

“As the university works towards returning to its residential heritage, this building plays an important role in providing an on campus experience to more of our students,” said Kathy Cavins-Tull, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.

Salesman Spencer Hays of Nashville and his wife, Marlene, have made a generous $30 million gift to Texas Christian University. The gift is a foundation gift in a $100 million facility expansion for the Neeley School of Business.For more information on the Neeley School of Business project, visit
