About University of Southern Mississippi
The original campus plan is the work of architect R.H. Hunt of Chattanooga, Tenn., whose design laid out a grand vision for the college. His work is still visible throughout the historic core of campus that encompasses the five original buildings erected for its opening on Sept. 18, 1912.
College Hall, Forrest County Hall, Hattiesburg Hall, the Honor House and the Ogletree Alumni House still stand today as testament to the institution’s legacy and unique campus identity. Besides, the Thad Cochran Center and Union Complex form the hub of student life, housing the main dining facility on campus as well as the university bookstore. The renovation of the old power plant into the Power House Restaurant provides a unique venue with outdoor seating across from Cook Library, where students enjoy a Starbucks coffee shop and lounge area. Adjacent is the Centennial Lawn, an open space where all can enjoy studying or just relaxing.
Southern Miss’ main campus sits on 300 acres in the heart of Hattiesburg. More than 180 buildings dot a landscape that has been transformed into a pedestrian-friendly environment for students, employees and visitors.
From the minute you step onto campus via the Centennial Gateway, there’s a sense of place characterized by history and tradition. From the rustic, industrial feel of the Power House Restaurant to the ultra-modern Trent Lott Center, the campus has a character and charm all its own in the heart of an urban setting.
