Stroud Hall/Roseberry Apartments

Flagstaff businessman L.L. Stroud opened a motel/dormitory in 1962 in a unique deal with Arizona State College. During the school year, 150 female students resided in Stroud Hall with the top two floors housing sororities and the first floor independent women. Over the years, a fraternity and even a hair salon occupied parts of the structure. In the summer tourist season, the hall became a motel for nearby Route 66.

In the late 1960s, local businessman George Nackard purchased Stroud Hall and then sold it to the state for $1.05 million. The university renamed it after Minnie Roseberry, who taught children at the campus Training School for over thirty years. Today, Roseberry contains fifty two studio apartments for married students without children and women students.
