Inside The Halls

Located in central campus, McBryde is an all-male, traditional-style residence hall. Built in 1955, it was named after John McBryde who served as president of South Carolina College from 1882 to 1883 and again from 1888 to 1891.

McBryde was enhanced with new furnishings, carpet and paint in the summer of 2010. The 250 residents who call McBryde home are just a short walk from the Russell House University Union and Thomas Cooper Library.
