Martin Hall is a Christ-centered environment filled with purposeful relationships that provide a platform for community living, encouragement toward personal autonomy, academic support, spiritual growth, and an understanding of global responsibility.
Martin Hall includes freshmen through seniors and has a sister hall, Reed, right across the street. The two halls love to get together for various events or to challenge one another in raising food or other items for the community.
The hall’s community emphasis is built on the hall verse: Joshua 24:15 “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” This reminds us of our unified pledge to grow spiritually together, holding one another accountable. As a hall, we stress the importance of vulnerability, self-acceptance, and appreciation of diversity.
“My greatest desire is that the students who come to Martin find the spiritual, academic and personal support to achieve their goals.”
My first experience working with residence life was in college as a resident assistant. After graduating with a degree in English in 2008, I completed a master’s degree in Psychology: Mediation and Conflict Resolution. The fall of 2010 was my first year back in residence life since my college days, and I love the opportunities to mentor students through this exciting transition.

Martin Hall is located in the North Village of campus and is called home by freshman through senior female students. Built in 2004, this building includes a large, tree-filled backyard, several lounges, a spacious lobby, kitchen area, and exercise room. The building is named after Dr. Glenn R. and Mrs. Betty Martin. Up to about 210 students live in the building yearly.
At the YMCA, residents of Martin Hall have the perfect opportunity to be used by God and serve in a way that is fulfilling and unique. Achieving this through the after-school program, residents hang out with the kids and show them the love of Christ.
